The Richard H. Driehaus Museum explores the art, architecture, and design of the late 19th-century, with a focus on the Gilded Age. The Museum is located just steps away from the Magnificent Mile within the meticulously restored Nickerson Mansion, renowned as Gilded Age Chicago's "Marble Palace," built in 1883. The architecture and surviving furnishings are complemented by period pieces selected from the Driehaus Collection. The Driehaus Museum further illuminates the period through numerous educational and cultural programs. 

The Museum is open for self-guided visitation during regular hours of operation. Guided tours of Driehaus Museum highlights are offered four times daily. Advance reservations are not required.
