This statute is located right across the street from the Iolani Palace. In front of the Hawaii government building. Included in the city tours and most buses stop for about 10 minutes I recommend a photo op and then come back to go through the palace.

This is a quick visit but such a thrill for us multi-generational Hawaii 5-0 fans. Took lots of pictures and couldn't wait to get back home to watch the TV show again. This is the one at Aliiolani Hale and opposite to Iolani palace. Bus available from Waikiki only $2.50!

The statue of King Kamehameha is iconic! It's the most famous statue on the island of Oahu and may be in all of the islands. It is seen in numerous shows, including Hawaii Five-0, every documentary and honors the King that once ruled the islands. It is located in front of Iolani Palace which was once where the kings and...

This is an iconic statue of the island. Well worth a stop in photo shoot. I hear Obama wants to tear it down and replace one of himself. Seems very reasonable to do. The amazing thing about this statue is the actual history of the original statue which was lost at sea and recovered near the Falkland Islands many years... More

This statute is located right across the street from the Iolani Palace. There is a very tiny exhibit inside the building behind the statute but it is not worth your time. I would recommend just coming here for a picture!

This is a fun stop when near the Iolani Palace. It is located just across the street, and since it is frequently spotlighted on the new Hawaii five 0 TV show, it was a funny experience when my wife started to hum the theme song, and the Japanese tourist smiled and joined in. We may not speak the same language,... More

Being an avid fan of Hawaii Five-0, the first thing we did on our first morning in Oahu was to head off to see the King Kamehameha Statue and the building that portrays the Hawaii Five-0 headquarters. The statue was much smaller than I expected it to be but it was more stunning than I expected. If you want to... More

Stunning What a monument, standing proud in front of the Palace The grounds around the the Palace and Statue are quite something else. You will never see this type of scene in Australia or Europe. A "must see" when in Honolulu

Great statue of the former king. Its gold leaf makes it stand out even more. Easily reached from the Iolani Palace, this statue is well worth a look.
