Richard H. Driehaus's mansion is now a small private museum with magnificent lights and stained glass designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Venus and Cupid sculptures, located in the middle of the study, bathed under the dome of stained glass, emit a holy and dreamy atmosphere. Chessboard ceiling, the pattern inside is embroidery, drawing on the design of Chinese Tianzao. Colored glass creates a three-dimensional screen shining like a gem.
The Derehaus Museum is a well-known comprehensive museum in Chicago. My partner will like it very much. It's worth a personal trip. The location of the museum is very good. The museum is very beautiful. My friends come to visit it. But he had a bad cold at that time. So I came here alone.
Is it a good choice? I like it very much. We're still going.
I happened to meet guided tour when I arrived, and each person charged $5. The lecturer is very professional and humorous. It is very helpful to understand the history of this house, pay attention to some luxurious details, the owner's gossip and other interesting things. Exhibitions on the artistic design and production of women's jewelry are also very interesting. Raise knowledge! Recommend!
Like the museum, there are many precious cultural relics, well protected, good explanation!
Museum is not big, and it is not remote. It used to be like a private museum. Passing by, you can see it. It's general.
