Ho‘omaka Hou at Queen Emma Summer Palace
You're invited to join us as we celebrate the re-opening of Queen Emma Summer Palace!
As a mahalo for your continued support, the Palace will open early for members and partners on Saturday, July 25th for Ho‘omaka Hou or New Beginnings. Reservations are not required, however, entrance into the museum will be limited with physical distancing. Partners and active members will have this special opportunity to get a first look at the museum.
Come and experience the Palace, with renewed exhibits, a refreshed guided tour, and a new way we share the story of Queen Emma and the royal family. The Palace is sparkling from floor to ceiling, with new artifacts and portraits on exhibit, the grounds received a much needed trimming and sprucing, and overall the facilities themselves had a chance to rest from the daily foot traffic. We look forward to sharing new beginnings with all of you, come and visit! If you’re unable to attend or would like to participate from home, videos will be posted on our Facebook pages.
