Plan Your Visit



Visitors explore the Palace at their own pace while listening to a pre-recorded audio guide to the first and second floors, their furnishings, and the compelling history behind the Palace. Guests are welcome to use their own earbuds/headphones for their comfort or request to use those provided by the Palace.  The pre-recorded audio recording is 60 minutes in length and is available in English, French, German, Hawaiian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, and Italian.  The tour concludes with a self-guided tour of the basement Galleries.
