Driehaus Museum

Steps away from Chicago’s Michigan Avenue, the Richard H. Driehaus Museum offers visitors a fascinating view of one of the few remaining examples of the palatial homes erected by the wealthy of America’s Gilded Age. The galleries, elegantly furnished with period pieces selected from the Driehaus Collection, are presented in harmony with the interiors and surviving furnishings, immersing visitors in the original splendor of this late nineteenth-century home. The lavish interiors are complemented by stunning examples of period furniture, decorative arts, and stained glass—including a magnificent selection of works by Tiffany Studios. The installations masterfully convey a sense of the lifestyle of the Gilded Age elite while allowing the interiors of the Nickerson House to remain at the forefront of the visitor experience.
