Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum is housed in the former home of industrial magnate Andrew Carnegie. The 64-room mansion, built from 1899 to 1902, is an impressive testament to the desire of Carnegie and his wife, Louise Whitfield Carnegie, to build a spacious, comfortable, and light-filled home in which to raise their daughter, Margaret. The mansion, designed in the Georgian style with Beaux Arts accents, was groundbreaking in its uptown location, technological features, and steel-frame construction. Join us on this tour exploring the Carnegie Mansion, its history, and highlights of the art and design still found within. .
