This voyage through the history of American domestic interiors uses architectural elements, furnishings, silver, glass, and other decorative and utilitarian objects to tell fascinating stories of American life, from the seventeenth through the early twentieth century. Many of the newly renovated period rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art interactive computer touch screens, which explore the social and historical context of the rooms and catalogue information about their furnishings.
The Henry R. Luce Center for the Study of American Art displays additional examples of American art.
