Immerse yourself in the Gilded Age splendor of the Driehaus Museum, just steps away from The Magnificent Mile!
The Richard H. Driehaus Museum engages and inspires the global community through exploration and ongoing conversations in art, architecture, and design of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Its permanent collection and temporary exhibitions are presented in an immersive experience within the restored Samuel Mayo Nickerson Mansion, completed in 1883, at the height of the Gilded Age. The Museum’s collection reflects and is inspired by the collecting interests, vision, and focus of its founder, the late Richard H. Driehaus.
The Museum is open Wednesdays-Sundays. We offer public-guided tours on a first come, first served basis throughout the day. Our current exhibition is Capturing Louis Sullivan: What Richard Nickel Saw. Visit www.driehausmuseum.org for more information and for the latest news about exhibitions and programs!
