It was interesting to learn a bit about the history of Hawaii. The museum is situated at a beautiful bay. The wooden furniture is stunning. They had a great raconteur managing the upstairs, he had lots of history to share via short stories.

A real Hawaiian palace on beautiful grounds. Staff tour was very informative. Also a bonus view of the ocean.
