Support the Driehaus Museum

Ways to Give

As the only Gilded Age mansion dedicated to the decorative arts and architecture of the late 19th-century in the heart of Chicago, your support is vital to preserving this national treasure.

Memberships and gifts to the Driehaus Museum support our exceptional exhibitions, outstanding programs and the continued care of the historic interiors as well as our audience development initiatives. Thanks to the generosity of our growing community, we are able to create a unique, immersive guest experience and ensure the historic Nickerson mansion remains accessible for future generations.

We invite you to support the Driehaus Museum by becoming an Individual or Corporate Member or by contributing to the Annual Fund.
