If you watch Hawaii 5-0 then this is a must visit location, it was another beautiful day when we visited and the statue gleams, its impressive and easy to find. Free along with HPD which is really the Aliiolani Hale building behind it.

If you go downtown Honolulu or visit Iolani Palace,visit this landmark of a real King.it is also a must for Hawaii 5- O fans as this comes in every episode of the show. Just takes a few minutes but nice to see and have some pictures.

We did a tour which once I found out as a massive Hawaii 50 fan of the show, that we were going there, I was over the moon about. The statue is everything and more. The palace on the same land as the statue was beautiful to take photos of as well and made you feel that you were part... More

Being a newly engaged Hawaii five-O fan I wanted to see the statue in person an got the opportunity on my first visit. Which was June 2013 on the way to lunch date and a day at the zoo. It's much more beautiful in person I must say than quick glimpses on a tv screen lol :)

If you enjoy watching the popular television show, Hawaii Five O you must stop and at least snap a picture!! That's it though ... Difficult to find a parking space during the week.

This is a place you have to visit and sit down and enjoy life and respect Hawaiian culture. My wife enjoyed this spot due to how well it is looked after and the history

The statue and the "real" story behind Hawaii Five-0 was worth the stop. You will also want to take time with the banyan tree grove on the left side of the building behind the statue. It's really hard to appreciate the scope of these trees until you see them. Take several pictures here. Also just know that there is a... More

Beautiful statue and building with so much history. For the keen TV show fan you will remember it well from episodes of H50. It's the building they use as the headquarters.
