The Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design is a museum for learning about the global cultures of Islamic art and design in new and inspiring ways. Originally the home of internationally renowned philanthropist, art collector, horticulturist, heiress, and socialite Doris Duke (1912-1993), Shangri La became the extension of the artwork and architectural collections inspired by her extensive travels to the Middle East, South Asia, and North Africa. From 1935-1992, Ms. Duke gathered over 4,500 objects and cultural resources. Shangri-La currently houses the largest private collection of Islamic Art in the world. The museum is a center of the Doris Duke Foundation. (Learn more about the Foundation here.)
