What people are saying:

Raining? Too bad. Take a tour of the only royal palace on U.S. soil. Find out what Hawaii was before we grabbed it.

    Must visit

    This was an amazing experience, coming from a local. It was a great way to know history and by actually being there was a great experience. Everyone was friendly as well.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Iolani Palace has a lot of unique distinctions associated with it. Constructed in 1882 by David "The Merrie Monarch" Kalakaua,this beautiful building happens to be the only Palace in the United States. Additionally, it had electricity a full four years before the White House, Windsor Palace and the Imperial Palace of Japan, flushing toilets before any palace anywhere, and was the first place in Honolulu to have a working telephone. There are a number of beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding this historic building, and tours proceed throughout the complex every thirty minutes. Adorned with authentic Hawaiian memorabilia, tours of this facility provide both a lesson in history and a look at a wide range of native art.
