The workshop titled, “Decolonizing Collections: A Hands-on Workshop,” will be held on Friday, November 9, 2018 at the Kanaina Building, located on the grounds of ʻIolani Palace. The Kanaina Building was built in 1906 and was the first building in the U.S. erected solely for the custody and preservation of public archive materials. It was restored in 1987 and now houses the administrative offices of The Friends of Iolani Palace.


There is limited metered parking on Iolani Palace grounds and nearby streets. Parking meters take only quarters with a rate of 25 cents/15 minutes. Be aware that street parking may be limited to certain lengths of time and prohibited during morning and afternoon rush hours. Please read posted signs carefully and take note of TOW AWAY information.

As an alternative, there is a private parking garage at Alii Place (1099 Alakea Street). The cost of parking is $3 for the first two hours and $1.50 for each additional half-hour. Entrance to the Alii parking garage is on the right side of Alakea Street between King Street and Hotel Street. Alakea is a one-way Mauka (mountain) bound street.
