Experience Tiffany’s artistry and legacy in Chicago in three distinctive locations. Traveling by private motor coach and led by an expert Museum guide, guests explore the way each space highlights unique aspects of the artist’s mastery in glass.
The tour begins with an extended private guided tour of the exhibition Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection, introducing the artist’s decorative vases, lamps, stained-glass windows, and accessories. Next, travel to Second Presbyterian Church, where nine majestic Tiffany windows illuminate the national historic landmark’s renowned Arts and Crafts sanctuary. The final stop is Navy Pier, where the Driehaus Gallery of Stained Glass exhibits eleven Tiffany Studios stained-glass windows, ranging from ecclesiastical scenes to secular landscapes.
As space is limited, advance ticket purchase is required. Ticket includes Driehaus Museum general admission, guided tours of each location, and round-trip transportation from the Museum. For questions about accessibility during the tour, please call 312 482 8933, ext. 21.
