Honolulu Culture

Honolulu is the cultural center of the state, with many landmarks and museums celebrating the islands’ rich history. Downtown, the Iolani Palace and the King Kamehameha statue honor the royalty of the Hawaiian Kingdom. The Bishop Museum just north of downtown presents Hawaiian history with canoes, costumes, documents and live performances. Outside the city, the Polynesian Cultural Center near Brigham Young University presents an outdoor representation of villages from Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, New Zealand and other Pacific cultures, with native dancers and interactive demonstrations. Hula can be found everywhere; two festivals are held in June and July.
