Foursquare Tips

  • First built in 1879, the Palace was a symbol of promise for the Hawaiian Kingdom built by King David Kalakaua, it is now known as a national Historic Landmark for being the only Palace in the US.
  • See the Royal Hawaiian Band est. 1836 by King Kamehameha III, every Friday at noon on the lawn.
  • Restoration of Iolani Palace was made possible by the Junior League of Honolulu whose funding and historical research guided the process for its 1978 opening to the public.
  • Nicest lavatory in town
  • Sunday it's closed, recommended to have a audio tour before 12PM and allow atleast one hour explore ground and first floor.. You also have basement showing collections of jewelry and swords (15min)
  • It's the only royal palace in the United States. That being said, go visit!
  • I like to lay out in the lawns with the hobos...
  • A beautiful day with my family
  • Check out the green parrots flying around on the Palace grounds.
  • Beautiful place to visit for a stroll or picnic.
  • To lay on the lawn under a shade tree in the middle of the afternoon close your eyes and forget the world for a while. Life is good here.
  • Great place to learn about Hawaiian history - must see when coming to Hawaii!
