​ Kalākaua Legacy Tour


The Kalākaua Legacy tour will showcase the life and legacy of our last ruling King, who was known as the “Merrie Monarch” and was instrumental in the revitalization of Hawaiian culture during his reign in the late 1800s. The tour will feature historical accounts and personal items belonging to King Kalākaua to help guests better understand not only what Kalākaua achieved locally and globally, but how his tangible vision of ʻIolani Palace, continues to contribute to the Hawaiian way of life and his preservation of hula, history, and tradition.

This specialty tour will provide visitors with a unique insight into Hawaiian history, culture, and future. The tour takes guests into basement galleries, and beyond the stanchions  throughout the Palace for an up-close look at precious objects.

The Kalākaua Legacy tour is available on Wednesdays at 3:45 p.m. and costs $77.95 for adults and $51.95 for children (ages 5 to 12). The 90-minute tour is limited to a maximum of 6 guests.
