The people there seemed very knowledgeable about the history of the palace and were very nice. The entire building was laid out with a lot of historical pieces.

Lots of artifacts in a historic building by the sea. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. It was pleasant being out on the back deck looking out at the sea.

Touring the palace brings the Hawaiian history to life. The furnishings are exquisite and the knowledge of the staff is helpful in bringing the era to life. The grounds surrounding the palace are beautiful. Watching the waves hit the sea wall has a calming effect.

It is too expensive for what you see. The view out the front of the house was nice. There really isn't much to say about the "Palace". I'd tell people to pass on this.

It was $6.00 for each senior and 4 people in our group. Yes, your shoes must be removed but they have paper booties for you to wear while inside. This was in summer. (2015)

This Daugters of Hawaill website should provide the answers you are seeking once the September calendar is up. I cannot attach the link but a simple search should find it.
