"Visit Queen Emma" Honolulu Things to Do Tip by Rixie
Honolulu Things to Do: 651 reviews and 1,289 photos
Honolulu summers can be intensely hot, so not surprisingly, Hawaiian royalty maintained cooler retreats outside of the city. You can visit the summer residence of Queen Emma, the wife of King Kamehameha IV, which is not far from downtown, in Nu'uanu Valley.
There are some interesting exhibits and some heartbreaking stories, like the one about the queen's son, Prince Albert Kamehameha, who died in 1862 at the age of four. The young prince was named after his godfather, Prince Albert of the United Kingdom. His godmother was Queen Victoria.
Open 7 days a week, 9:00-4:00, last tour 3:30. Closed on major holidays. Check the website for special events and admission prices.
I found some nice Hawaiian children's books at the gift shop.
