The Palace

Palace Interior

The first and second floors of the Palace have been meticulously restored and are open to the public for guided tours.

The first floor consists of the public reception areas - the Grand Hall, State Dining Room, Blue Room, and the Throne Room. The second floor consists of the private suites - the King's and Queen's suites, Music Room, and the Imprisonment Room, where Queen Liliʻuokalani was held under house arrest for a little under eight months following the overthrow of her government.

The following provides a description of a sampling of the rooms that can be visited on the tours.
