Muʻu at the Museum

To honor Queen Emma’s birthday we’re celebrating Muʻumuʻu month with an event focused on the glamor and tradition of our favorite garments. “Muʻu at the Museum” will be held on January 15 from 6pm to 9pm at Hānaiakamalama on Oʻahu. Proceeds from this event will support the historic preservation, maintenance and operations of the Palace and grounds.

January 12, 2022 UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to the rise of COVID-19 cases and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to cancel the Muʻu at the Museum event at Huliheʻe Palace on January 22nd. For the safety of the Hawaiʻi Island community, we will be postponing this event till next year. Mahalo for your continued support and understanding!


The Fashion

We have partnered with some legendary muʻumuʻu makers such as Nakeʻu, Bete Muʻu, Puamana Crabbe and Princess Kaʻiulani Fashions as well as local collectors like the Kawakami Family of ʻIolani Sportswear. A selection of muʻumuʻu will be on display and the designers and collectors will be in attendance to talk story with attendees during the event.


The Contest

Attendees are invited to wear their finest holokū, muʻumuʻu, and aloha attire in the spirit of friendly competition participate in a contest to vote for the best-dressed in three categories – Elegant, Vintage, and Avant Garde.


The Setting

Come and enjoy the Palaces as you rarely get to see them. Hānaiakamalama is even more stunning at night!.
