Just off Chicago's Magnificent Mile, stained-glass pieces by Louis Comfort Tiffany are featured at Richard H. Driehaus Museum, which is tucked away in the Samuel M. Nickerson House. The museum houses the private collection of Chicago philanthropist, businessman, and art lover Richard H. Driehaus, whose foundation continues to fund many of the city's up-and-coming artists. You can view more than 1,500 pieces of textile, furniture, decor, and sculpture here. The stained glass is all around, installed in the windows and embedded in the architecture to better catch the light. Be sure to look up in the sculpture gallery to see the elaborate dome. Choose from guided or self-guided tours, then rest on the Art Nouveau furniture on the third floor. Visit the website to see if any concerts or lectures are taking place here during your visit.

An incredible experience! We took the guided, highlights tour with Erick and we are so happy we did (as opposed to self guided). All the staff were friendly and enthusiastic, but our guide was exceptional. He was knowledgeable and excited to answer the group’s questions. The house has such an interesting history and some honestly jaw-dropping pieces inside. Tour is about an hour. Discounts available to students.
FAVORITE PLACE IN CHICAGO. Cannot recommend this enough. I loved everything in here. A lot of history and everything is very very beautiful. The tour was awesome and the whole building is beautiful. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend.
