Hanaiakamalama - Review
Managed by the Daughters on Honolulu Organization, Queen Emma Summer Palace is one of the less serious historic attractions around Honolulu. While most others invoke rather sad emotions, this pretty place invokes great nostalgia and transports you back in time.
The Queen Emma Summer Palace or the Hanaiakamalama, which used to be a summer retreat, has now become a place of interest for tourists in Honolulu. The lovely palace is home to several of the original interiors and many objects from the royal era is most certainly fascinating.
The royal feather cloak in the cloak room is worth a see. So are the ornamented wooden beds and the tapestries. All the objects on display are fascinating and a very unique insight into Hawaii’s history and hence not to be missed. Queen Emma Summer Palace is one of the attractions in 3 Days Itinerary Honolulu. Must visit this awesome attraction.
- Because the Palace was built in the nineteenth century, access may not be available for visitors who have difficulties climbing stairs.

Hanaiakamalama, Honolulu Reviews
Great for learning some of the Hawaiian history. Not children friendly as it is a museum that is like an open house so if kids are prone to grabbing or picking things up, you were warned. And NO SHOES inside, it's a historical house! (Sometimes they have a Japanese guide, so check ahead if you need).
Beautiful building and grounds, super cool historic furniture, feather standards and cloaks. We were handed some informative laminated sheets of paper that really made the furniture pieces come to life, and explained the history of the queen and her family.
I haven't been here since a field trip in the 5th grade. Liked it so much better than I remember. Funny how age makes you appreciate history and want to learn more. Our guide was very informative, injecting little story tidbits here and there. The palace is small, but very pretty with interesting artifacts. The koa furniture is breathtaking. A nice chill place to visit to learn a small piece of Hawaii.
Came here for a wedding... Ive lived here my whole life and never knew about the summer palace was open to da public.. Very beautiful, just try imagine how it was back in the 1800s... Im amazed
Definitely do the tour if you can - the building is interesting but the context makes it fascinating! Prepare to take off your shoes, too. Lovely and inexpensive gift shop as well.
