    Shari La is the former home of the fabulously wealthy Doris Duke, who built her dream home on this gorgeous peninsula and filled it with superb Islamic art. Visits start and end at the Hawaii Museum of Art in downtown Honolulu from where a bus leaves for the Diamond Head mansion. Once there, curators explain the pieces on show on walls, floors and ceilings, before visitors are allowed time to wander round inside and out and take photographs. Ice cream on the lawn concludes the visit.

    We are art museum people and when I found out there was a Monet waterlily there we put it on our list. Although small, it does have a wide variety of different art work and is in a pleasant setting. Parking is easy to find and $5. It's closed Monday & Tuesday and you can make reservations online or walk in.

    We visited in March 2023 when there was a large exhibit of students' artworks from local high schools which were competing for best photograph, best sculpture, etc. It was a fabulous display of up and coming Hawaiian artists in addition to the contemporary art of homegrown talent on show. I very much enjoyed the sculptures there, esp. the ones outside. A great free museum well-located near the Iolani Palace and the Hawaii State Capitol building. Metered street-parking nearby as well as a parking garage.

    Passage, made of Bronze and Stainless Steel erected in 1993
    Passage symbolizes Hawaii's transition into the future. Represented in the dark surfaces of the arch are the challenges we face. On the other side, the polished surface signifies our reaction to these challenges after they have been met.
