Description

Queen Emma was born in 1836 and was the wife of Kamehameha IV. She was a descendant of England-born Hawaiian chief John Young and a friend and advisor to Kamehameha I. Emma Emma has become a symbol of international Hawaiian culture. The Summer Palace is the residence of Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV built on Oahu in 1847. After the restoration, you can get a glimpse of real life in Hawaii.

 

In the Summer Palace, you will find home furnishings, Emma’s personal items, Hawaiian quilts and handicrafts. Group guides and school trips can also be provided. There are also special exhibits, craft demonstrations, audiovisual programs, Hawaiian quilts, and language lessons.

After visiting the palace, stop at the adjacent Nuuanu Valley Park (Nuuanu Valley Park). The park is just behind the gift shop in the Summer Palace.
