  • There is a maximum of 8 researchers allowed at any time during our public hours
  • If there is a waiting list (more than 8 people), your research time in the archives is limited to 2 hours from the time you checked in

Help us to flatten the curve and move forward Hawaiʻi! Spread Aloha and not COVID-19! Mahalo for your support and cooperation!

*NOTE: In order to provide access to the Public Research Room, the Archives is reliant upon the ʻIolani Palace State Monument being open to the public during regular business hours. At this time, DLNR and the Friends of ʻIolani Palace have designated Wednesday through Fridays as the days the park will be open to the public.
