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.

It would be silly to go to Oahu without stopping to take a look at this statue. It was fun for us because three years ago, we saw another one (there are three in total) in the Hall of Statues at the US Capital in Washington DC. So we had to get a picture of us in front of this... More

Every time I see this statue, it reminds me of Hawaii Five-0 during the opening presentation. We have seen three of the statues but have yet to travel to the island of Hilo to see the fourth. I’ve always enjoyed coming to the islands and felt that, at least for me, I should at least know the “abridged version” of... More

Can't really say too much about a statue. Lots of history to it & I found that interesting. The courthouse which it stands outside of is a good visit as is the Palace across the road.

I didn't seek out this attraction, we just happened to walk past it. It's a pretty statue, with a nice building behind it, which makes for some great pictures, especially if the sun is shining. Unfortunately there wasn't much information around to give any context to King Kamehameha, i had to read about this later. I would recommend stopping if... More
