We went to tour the palace in celebration of our dear friend's birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed Ms Nola and the home itself. She gave us a fabulous tour with much historical info and background tidbits. The home itself is well preserved and filled with many Hawaiian artifacts. The grounds are also worth browsing. It was raining as it often does in Nu'uanu so be prepared. There is also a lovely little gift shop in the back. They have an area to rent out for parties and events.

Ali`iolani Hale, or the King Kamehameha V - Judiciary History Center, is most well known for being the home of a towering gold-plated statue of Hawaii's famous King Kamehameha. The unique work of art has a striking contrast between the king himself and his golden traditional Hawaiian chief ensemble. It is easily one of the most photographed attractions in Honolulu, and is a staple of nearly every city tour.

A great place to understand the historical govt and traditonal leadership of Hawaii. This palace and design are very impressive. The modern amentities within the palace are considered advanced for its time. The decorations, portraits, and furniture are informative and educational. The basement has lots of paintings and pictures depicting the history of the palace, king/Queen, and people involved with the palace throughout time. You can finish this tour in under 2 hours. Very friendly staff.
