  • Queen Emma's Summer Palace was a great follow up to the other pieces of history around Oahu. We did the self guided tour. Kind of wished we did the Docent led tour. I feel like you get a little more info. I enjoyed the extra insight into the monarchy of Hawaii. Especially in all the efforts Queen Emma made to better her island for her people. Highly recommend. Would happily support Daughters of Hawaii and their efforts to preserve important landmarks in the history of Hawaii.
  • We loved our visit! Not so much a "palace", more of a country get away for Queen Emma and her family. There are many artifacts and antiques in the home, all intriguing.The best part of the visit was the docent! I wish I knew her name. She knows so much about the family and Hawaiian history. We asked many questions and she was always quick to answer. I told her, "we could talk to you all day". If you are interested in history/ Hawaii history and the culture, this is such a great visit!
