Yes, its a statue but look around

Famous, iconic stop (particularly with Asian tours). Behind it is the Hawaiian Supreme Court building (go ahead inside if you wish) and across the street is the massive Iolani... read more

I have seen all the statues except the one that sunk at sea. I'm amazed at the love still shown to this man after all these years. Impressive work of art. I love how it's decorated at different times.

Famous, iconic stop (particularly with Asian tours). Behind it is the Hawaiian Supreme Court building (go ahead inside if you wish) and across the street is the massive Iolani Palace, the only such structure on U.S. soil and former home of the Hawaiian monarchy. Take the tour, its worth it, and tickets are available behind the building to the left... More

I was kind of looking forward to see this Hawaii Five o HQ, but the building was closed when I visited. Beautiful palace.

Was beautiful, compelling colors, history plaque, and stood out for land mark for those who had rental cars or motor scooters. Land scape was beautiful.

Well this is a great place to visit, both as a tourist or a Hawaii Five O fanatic! It was a wonderful experience to see the statue, and know the history to it. Additionally, we had just seen the Hawaii Five O series, and it was nice to be there. A visit to the Kamehameha Statue can be easily included... More

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.
