A helping of Hawaii history. Built in 1879, this palace was once the home of King Kalakaua. And what a home it must have been. On the outside, the colonnaded veranda is peppered with floral motifs. Inside, it’s a riot of burgundy velvet, gold lacquer and carved koa wood. Grab an audio guide on the way in to get the full story of the Hawaiian monarchy’s life and ultimate demise.
