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.

Hanaiakamalama, Honolulu Reviews - Write a Review

  • This is a quaint little place. There are a total of 6 rooms and the rooms have been decorated with historical artifacts. If possible try to avail of the free docent led tours. There tours are very informative indeed. You get to learn a lot about Hawaii and it's rulers. There is a gift shop at the back of the main building. The gardens around the building are exquisite.

  • Little gem of Hawaiian history in a verdant garden setting. The palace and grounds speak of an older Hawaii, graceful and warm. Meant as a summer retreat, it retains that peaceful atmosphere while just a short distance from Honolulu.

  • Very nice page of history. Must get guided tour. it's full of knowledge. It takes 40 mins.

  • Hānaiakamalama (The Foster Child of the Moon), or Queen Emma Summer Palace, served as a retreat for Queen Emma of Hawaii from 1857 to 1885, as well as for her husband King Kamehameha IV, and their son, Prince Albert Edward.
