Iolani Palace
28-NOV-2016

Iolani Palace

After touring the historic Washington monuments display and the NPS tribute, we (or more correctly, I) decided to also see the model train exhibit, which in reality was a series of re-creations of iconic national parks and sites in the National Register of Historic Places, all made from plants and other natural materials, with some model trains running through, around or above them. I must add that this exhibit was staged in a darkened gallery, and the lighting was in very unusual colors.

This is the Iolani Palace National Historic Landmark in Hawaii.

I hope these arenít getting too boring! I have maybe eight more to post that I hate to leave out because the workmanship on these models is just so amazing, and the exhibit really is an outstanding presentation of American history and culture. Plus I rarely have many pictures to work on these days ;-).
