It's tough to rate places like the Royal Mausoleum because it's not for everyone but it's very well maintained and it's exactly what it is trying to be which is a peaceful resting place for the deceased. Hawaiian history buffs will like enjoy stopping by and seeing the place and some of the graves.
Is it something fun for the family? No, not at all, but it's not trying to be that either. It's just a sacred place that memorializes Hawaiian royalty. If that interests you then stop by, take a look around, read the various grave stones and plaques, and you'll likely enjoy your visit. For everyone else, you can probably skip it.
