not often impressed by statues but this one looks the part and if you are passing it is worth a look. He was a major player in the history of Hawaii and it's journey from being unknown to the early explorers to being central to the economy of the Pacific - timber, whaling, ..... etc

The layout of this statue is very well done. All along the outside of the statue there are plaques providing the story of King Kamehameha. And the status is impressive as well.

Do come and see King Kamehameha's statue, a great warrior who unified Hawaii under his rule. It is a good place to see along with Iolani Palace and the former Government House. See all three in one visit as they are within a five minute walk of each other.

My husband and I parked nearby in a parking garage ($24 for 1.5 hours) and walked over to the statue and toured the courthouse museum area. It was great. They do a great job with the layout of the self-guided tour.

Our tour bus stopped for a 15 minute photo stop here. The statue, palace and government buildings all around were very interesting.

We were excited to see this because of Hawaii 50 - ok yes were tourists, but we were still interested in the history and so spotting thus statue from afar was something of a thrill
