About this Tour

Well before 1959, when Hawaii became the most recent U.S. state, Hawaiian King Kamehameha III made Honolulu his permanent capital in the 1840s. The Hawaiian monarchy ruled here for half a century. That was until a new government that represented the territorial interests of the United States overthrew the Hawaiian kingdom.

A Walk Through Historic Honolulu is an audio walking tour that focuses on the history of Honolulu from the early 19th century onward. On this tour you will travel through downtown Honolulu and through time following when Honolulu was ruled by Hawaiian royalty to its days as a U.S. territory and eventually a state.

Sites on the tour include: Kawaiahao Church, Kekuanaoa Building, Mission Houses Museum, Hawaii State Art Museum, Aloha Tower, Iolani Palace (the royal residence), Hawaii State Capital, and others. Hawai’i Pacific University, Neal S. Blasisdell Center, and the Honolulu harbour are nearby attractions.
