On July 31, 1843, British Admiral Richard Thomas ended his compatriot Lord George Paulet’s six-month occupation of the nation of Hawai‘i and restored power to King Kamehameha III. Thomas made the declaration where Thomas Square now sits. To commemorate the event and the man behind it, for the second year the museum celebrates La Ho‘iho‘i Ea, with free admission for kama‘aina (with ID) to the Honolulu Museum of Art and Spalding House. Great free event and opportunity for a family visit to the museum, hope to see you there!
