The 2017 Iolani Palace Ornament is now available for purchase! This year’s ornament honors the 100th anniversary of the passing of Queen Liliuokalani and the 55th anniversary of the commissioning of the Ceremonial Royal Guard.

The Liliuokalani Regina ornament is designed after an artifact in the Iolani Palace collection: a uniform button dating to the reign of Queen Liliuokalani. The design includes the letters L R, representing Liliuokalani Regina, placed between a crown and an open wreath. Regina is the Latin word for Queen.

The 2017 Iolani Palace ornament is available for purchase at the Palace and Gallery Gift Shops.

This is a preventive measure to protect visitors and objects, especially during crowded conditions. We encourage museum visitors to take selfies and share their experiences—and leave the selfie sticks in their bags.
