Rough Point Museum reviews
Beautiful estate and grounds. The staff are very knowledgeable about Doris Duke and the mansion. We enjoyed the fact that it was timed entry so we knew it wouldn't be super crowded. more »
We toured Rough Point over two days as it was pouring rain the day we went and the grounds are just as important to see as the main house. I think this house is one of the nicest of the Bellevue Ave.... more »
Neat mansion. Not as crowded as others. The staff was excellent. It was a cool day outside yet it was freezing in the mansion! My toes were frozen by the time I left. You could even tell the staff was cold. Be prepared and bring a sweater. Doris Duke has a lot of neat artifacts that she collected. I would even have enjoyed more plaques because there was just so many interesting things.
Amazing.!!! Doris Duke was one interesting and amazing woman! Her home a mix of past and present . You can see how she loved her home at Rough Point. Possibly my favorite or the Newport Mansion. Such a human feel here! I will always come back to visit!
