Tobacco heiress Doris Duke stipulated in her will that her opulent and fanciful home (called Shangri La) on the shores of Diamond Head be turned into a museum. The mansion, designed in an array of Islamic architectural styles, houses her 60-year collection of more than 3,500 stunning and rare works of art from the Muslim world (many embedded in the house itself). The property is under the auspices of the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art and is open to small group tours.

Admission price varies with size of group. Tours by appointment only.

Insider Tip:

Reservations must be made weeks and sometimes months in advance.
