The Richard H. Driehaus Museum

This is an archived listing.


40 E. Erie St.


Near North Side


Burling and Whitehouse, 1883


Steps away from Chicago's Magnificent Mile, the Driehaus Museum is a fascinating and rare example of the palatial homes erected by the wealthy of America's Gilded Age. The galleries are elegantly furnished with pieces from the most celebrated designers of the late 19th and early 20th century, such as Louis Comfort Tiffany and the Herter Brothers. This Decorative Arts collection is presented in harmony with the immaculately-restored interiors and surviving furnishings of the 1879 Samuel M. Nickerson Mansion, which was designated a Chicago landmark in 1977.
