Beautiful picture that I'll make into... More

The statue of King Kamehameha is a symbolic to Hawaiian Heritage. Behind it is a museum That entailed the history of Hawaii. A must to see and visit when in Honolulu. Parking is limited in the area.

If you are a fan of Hawaii 5-0 then you will know this statue, in my view it is a must see when you are there. It is just off the road so easy to get to.

We visited here while on a bus tour to Pearl Harbour. So much history and we learnt so much. The gardens and lawns were very well maintained. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. A very pretty place definitely worth a visit

This is the true culture of Hawaii. I was honored to see this historic site and learn from our tour guide about this king.

Saw this statue as part of a conducted tour of Oahu. I don't think it would mean much without the commentary from our tour guide. Worth a look if you're in the area.
