House opens Chamber for public visits


The House Chamber will be open Mondays through Fridays for Hawaii State Capitol visitors and guests to tour the gallery area.

Access to the Chamber will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., including the hours that the House is normally in session.

There will not be an official tour, however visitors to the Chamber will have access to look around, take pictures, and will be given a brochure explaining the history and symbolism of the Chamber architecture and design.

The House Sergeant-at-Arms expects about 100 visitors to the Chamber daily.

“The House Chamber is quite stunning with warm earth tones, a large copper and brass chandelier representing the sun and a magnificent tapestry above the Speaker’s rostrum” said Speaker of the House Joseph Souki. “Previously the chamber was open only during floor session and times would vary depending on the agenda. Now, given the expanded and set hours, more visitors will have the opportunity to sit on koa benches and experience the beauty of our Chamber.”

For more information, call the House of Representative’s Sergeant-at-Arms Office at (808) 586-6500.
