Tuesday, August 16, 1994 to Sunday, August 20, 1995

An introduction to the house the Carnegie family called home. In 1902, Andrew Carnegie, his wife, Louise, their daughter, Margaret, and a staff of 19 servants moved into the 64 room mansion designed by the architects Babb, Cook and Willard in the style of an English country manor house. Carnegie’s wealth and philanthropy are famous, and his love of learning was incomparable. The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum stands as a memorial to his aspirations for society.
