King Kamehameha the Great was perhaps Hawaii's greatest king, uniting all of the islands and setting the foundation for the entire monarchy period of Hawaii -- all the way through more modern monarchs such as King David Kalakaua and Queen Liliuokalani, the last reining monarchs. The statue in Honolulu is actually one of four statues around the state. June 11... More

My friend, fiance and I were just taking the bus to waikiki beach and one of our transfers were right in front of this statue and she said it was the thing to see. I wasn't sure what was so amazing about this statue but reading more about it when I got home I realized it was a big deal... More

For fans of the show its a must and if you are in the area you can also do a whale watching tour, go up the Aloha tower and go to the Iolani palace which was directly opposite. Avoid sundays as the palace is closed. ( which i found out) there is also an old church 5 minutes down the... More

The statue itself is nice but nothing special. It's in a nice area, though, and it's worth going to just because it's such a touristy thing to do and to see some of the other things close by. If you missed it, though, I wouldn't lose any sleep!

haha, great photo ops... don't tell anyone but... it's really not the head office of 5oh. City hall is not far and everything was decked out for Christmas in late Nov.

This is a typical must have photo for anyone visiting Hawaii! You will most likely have to wait in a line to get a picture with the statue, but it is a must...so wait, it is worth it!

I saw this place while on a tour. This place was so beautiful and our tour guide had so much history to give us on this building! I'm ashamed I don't remember much of the history. In spite of this,this is a wonderful place to visit and take pictures.

Ok, I admit it. I'm a Hawaii 5-0 fan. That's what made this standard tourist photo all the more exciting for me. There is a lot of history here though and it's definitely worth a stop if you're in the area. It's across the road from the Palace so I assume a lot of people would be visiting the area... More

We just drove pass the King Kamehameha Statue, it's a really awesome statue. We didn't go into the building at all. There's lots of people waiting in line to take a photo of the statue, but it's worth it.
