Museums & Centers
Duke Farms, Shangri La Museum & Rough Point Museum
In her will, Doris Duke requested that her properties in New Jersey, Hawaii and Rhode Island be opened for public visitation and used for educational and mission-advancing programs.
The Doris Duke Foundation (DDF) funds these museums and centers, and operates Duke Farms, the foundation’s environmental center, and Shangri La, a Honolulu-based center for exploring the global cultures of Islamic art. Duke Farms and Shangri La are led by DDF's President & CEO, as well as the same board, and work closely with colleagues across the foundation. Rough Point, with support from DDF, is operated by the Newport Restoration Foundation.
