This place was beautiful. Talk about royalty! We had a hilarious and amazing tour guide for this. He used to work for the District Attorney, so he was telling us stories about how he used to come to this palace to do work here. The palace is beautiful. The tour is so interesting and has a lot to show you in such a short amount of time. They go through every room and show you so many things, it's hard to take it all in that this once was a place where royalty lived. We did the first tour of the morning and since this place is beautiful at that time. It's definitely worth checking out. Make sure to bring a camera or your phone because there's a lot of things you don't normally get to see up close like the jewels and crowns.
We only got to see the outside but what a beautiful building and surrounding area. Definitely a must-see if you are close by. Maybe check out the schedule for inside access and or tours. Parking was a little crazy but we eventually found street parking at a meter and walked a block or two which was not too bad. Part of a tour group would have even been better for parking purposes.
Very nicely maintained palace with good narration of history during the tour. 20 dollars for the entrance. I feel it's a bit pricey.. but the overall experience was very nice. If you don't want to enter the palace you can just enter the basement to visit the gift shop, jewelry section and kitchen. And roam the palace grounds.
Upper Floors were closed at noon due to overcrowding on Smithsonian's Museum Day. Touring the basement was interesting, but the famous jewel butterfly was not on view (currently on display at the art museum), and my friend and I had hoped to see all the rooms. Nevertheless we did get a good feel for the luxurious dining, advanced plumbing, and exceptional sophistication of palace life.
Beautiful historical place to visit and learn about the last monarchy of Hawaii. The transportation to get there is easy. It's almost in the center of everything. Highly recommended to visit this place first thing after landing in Hawaii.
