Visit the Palace

A past era comes alive at Queen Emma Summer Palace in historic Nu`uanu Valley. Queen Emma Summer Palace, also known as Hanaiakamalama (meaning “foster child of the moon”), was used by Queen Emma and her family as a retreat from the rigors of court life in hot and dusty Honolulu of the mid-1800s. It was here in historic Nu`uanu Valley that the queen consort and her husband, King Kamehameha IV, and their young son, Prince Albert Edward, enjoyed some of their happiest hours together.

Queen Emma Summer Palace is open seven days a week, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  Admission is $ 6 for adults, $ 1 for children, and $ 4 for kama'aina.

Admission is free for all current members of the Daughters of Hawai'i (Daughters and Calabash Cousins).
