    What You Can Expect to See at the Iolani Palace

    Marvel at the ornate architecture, see the sumptuous furnishings, and learn about this fascinating building and its former occupants.

Wander around the main rooms and halls, including the Grand Hall, the Throne Room, the State Dining Room, and the King and Queen’s private suites. You'll also see the Blue Room, which was used for small receptions, and displays a portrait of King Louis Philipe given to the Hawaiian palace as a gift from the French government. Enjoy a wonderful experience at the former Official Royal Palace of Hawaii!

    Iolani Palace also houses a collection of furniture made by famous Boston furniture maker A.H. Davenport. Once you’ve explored the interiors, you can head to the palace grounds and see the ornate royal tomb and the Coronation Pavilion. This attraction is not to be missed for history fans.
