Local eccentric fund-manager and philanthropist Driehaus has opened this museum to publicly display his expansive collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany lamps and accessories, and other late 19th century furnishings. Housed inside the mansion built by 19th-century liquor-magnate Samuel M Nickerson, the immaculately rehabbed “marble palace” is also a shining example of building preservation.
