from Hawai`i Monarchs Tour
Travel back in time to gain a better understanding and appreciation of a race of way finders and warriors who first arrived on these majestic shores over 2,000 years ago.
From completion of the `Iolani Palace in 1882 to the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893, be captivated with stories about the Royal residents and how they lived, as you are led through the first-floor staterooms and second-floor private quarters.
Travel back further at the Bishop Museum and explore everything from the evolution of the Hawaiian Islands to the ancestral voyage to these islands and how Polynesian navigators used the stars to find their way!
Tie it all together in Hawaiian Hall and meet the Ali`i (royal class). Through over 3,900 exhibits hear their stories, experience their trials and triumphs and embrace the true spirit of these islands.
