If you are a fan of Hawaii five-o TV show then stopping by the court house and King Kamehameha statue is a must. This can be a quick stop as the court/judicial building is not large. It is interesting, there is no fee. You are required to go through a metal detector.

A full day can be spent in downtown Honolulu exploring the nearby palace grounds, the Supreme Court, and the statue of King Kamehameha. Stop by the statue and read the placards surrounding. It's an interesting site and impressive statue.

What an awesome building and statue. Just don't drive by you must go inside and see the history. It is absolutely beautiful. We spent an hour just walking around inside and reading and looking at all the artifacts. Besides we are big Hawaii 5-0 fans so it was a great thrill to be inside their headquarters. There are guards and... More

I had to visit this statue after listening to the history of the Hawaiian Islands and also looking at some old postage stamps. The week before Father's Day the had a celebration and the king was covered in flowers and vines. This statute has been here for a long time and is in great shape.

Have to go and take a selfie with King Kamehameha. The statue is quite beautiful and the palace is also nice.

As a Hawaii Five-0 fan (both old and new series), this landmark was a must see! Right behind the statue are state offices, or, as some may believe, the office of Steve McGarret and his Five-0 Team!) :) As an educator to elementary students, a photo opportunity with Hawaii's great king kept my students engaged to my lesson plan on...

Stopped here when on the Pearl Harbour tour, and it was worth the stop. The King Kam statue was impressive as was the Justice Chambers, worth going inside and having a look around. Security prior to entry but there is some interesting history on the walls along with great arcitecture inside. Toilets here as well.
