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 Charitable Foundation (DDCF) funds and oversees these museums and centers. Duke Farms, which is now a center for environmental stewardship, and Shangri La, which is a museum for learning about the global cultures of Islamic art, are led by DDCF's President & CEO, as well as the same board, and work closely with colleagues across the foundation.
