Hawaii State Capitol Tours

star-3.5
4 reviews
Hawaii State Capitol
Hawaii’s Capitol building doesn’t have the grand golden domes of capitols in other U.S. states, instead its exterior is blocky and reminiscent of the 1960s postmodern era in which it was built. But, like other capitols, its features are rife with symbolism. Inside, the central courtyard opens to the sky via narrowing layers set to mimic the interior of the volcano; the two Legislative chambers also feature unique sloped walls to achieve a similar effect. The eight supporting pillars on the front and back of the building narrow toward the top to evoke the trunks of royal palm trees, there is one for each of the main Hawaiian Islands. A raised moat reflecting pool surrounds the building and is said to symbolize the Pacific surrounding the Islands. Visitors can wander through the courtyard and grounds, which has an appropriately blocky statue of Father Damien—a sainted priest who treated Hansen’s disease patients on a remote Molokai peninsula in the late 1800s before succumbing to the disease himself—an exact duplicate represents the state in the U.S. Capitol’s National Statuary Hall.

Cultural Tours

The Counter Cultural Tour of Honolulu

The concept of this tour was created by two time, New York Times featured tour guide Michael Pellagatti — and is presented by Michael (seasonally) Dr. Kalani Young & her husband DanTo date, this is the ONLY WALKING TOUR in Honolulu to discuss Honolulu’s growth as an urban center in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, along with the city’s myriad of cultural and artistic allegories. Most of the tours in Oahu do not go into much depth about the architecture, history, and urban planning behind Honolulu — this tour does. This tour also covers some of the lesser known histories behind the city in general such as the unlawful usurpation of the Hawaiian Kingdom in 1893, the rise of the sugar industry, the 1900 Chinatown fire, the 1940s labor movement, the 1970s Hawaiian Renaissance Movement, Tyke the Elephant escaping the circus and running loose through Honolulu in 1994, and Honolulu’s interpretation of the Occupy Wall Street Movement in 2011.
