Driehaus Museum named one of TripAdvisor's most unexpected popular attractions

Steve Hall/Hedrich Blessing, Drawing Room

TripAdvisor is easily one of the first places that travelers search when they are planning their trips to destinations they are not familiar with, especially with a city as large as Chicago.  As of this writing, the Driehaus Museum has consistently been in the top 10 museums in the city, currently resting at #3, as well as the #11 in thing to do in Chicago overall.  We are often asked how we come in at such a high ranking behind the likes of the Art Institute of Chicago.  We bring in visitors who are seeking unique cultural experiences as well as an interest in historic homes, history, and the Decorative Arts.  These visitors enjoy sharing their visit and insights with others in the online community of TripAdvisor.  We are frequently seeing the comments that our visitors are amazed by the quality of the restoration, the historic interiors, and the collections, but also the high quality of the guest experience.  Our guides are friendly and have a high level of knowledge when it comes to the Nickerson Mansion and the Museum’s collection. 

We are honored to be featured in this fantastic article pointing out the lesser know institutions in larger cities, including New York and Las Vegas.  Read more about the Driehaus Museum and other amazing places of interest for your future travels!  Read more on USA Today.
