Beautiful old restored mansion - loved all the Tiffany glass, beautiful marble staircases and beautiful woodwork. A gem worth seeing. Be sure to sign up the the public tour for an additional $5.

This was an absolutely stunning place to visite. I really love Thiffany and this was a thiffany heaven. The place was style in its core. I did not see an object I didn’t love.

Erik was the guided tour leader, super tour (for just 2 people… answered all of our questions, well worth the extra $5!!). Amazing 3 floors of beauty and interesting history of how the house was built, what the neighborhood was like, how it came to be restored. Each room has different woods, tile, stained glass, carved friezes, marble… come early and look around, take the tour, then we went back and looked again! Great to contrast w FLW’s Robie house (as much as I love Prairie Style, Driehaus makes it look pretty forlorn!!).

A phenomenal, breathtaking museum to visit! Well worth the time, and it's conveniently located if somewhat too discrete to notice. Go!

Ordered my ticket online and got in with no problem. Lushly appointed rooms that you can wander around in without having to take a guided tour (which is my preference). Many of the objects displayed aren't original to the house but were added later. Still, a great Gilded Age experience. The inevitable gift shop is on the 3rd floor.

I am in love with this Gilded Age mansion - such exquisite interiors. The flooring, wall treatments, fireplace surrounds, and art work are inspired. I took the additional $5 tour, which was very informative. If you are a fan of Art Nouveau, William Morris, and Tiffany stained glass, this is the place for you.

Wow. What a house that has been renovated back to 1883. Definitely pay the extra $5 for a public guided tour. The guide provides so much info that is not obvious. Probably the #1 item I did on this trip. Up there with deep dish pizza.W

A gem of a museum. Came here based on the TripAdvisor ranking and was thrilled I did. Takes about an hour to see. Amazing collection of Tiffany lamps and vases but so much more as well. A very high quality and beautifully displayed collection of late 18th to early 19th century art and objects. A real treat.

This museum is great for anyone interested in Chicago's history, along with fabulous architecture and furnishings. The staff was super friendly and helpful in answering questions, since guided tours were not an option (due to COVID). I enjoyed just exploring on my own, though I definitely want to go back when tours are available again. I had a great conversation with the woman working in the gift shop when I was buying some items.
