In addition to introducing attendees to the Ferris wheel, Juicy Fruit gum and the hamburger, the sprawling complex of buildings that Daniel Burnham designed for the 1983 World's Columbian Exposition hosted companies that were eager to show of their latest products. The Driehaus Museum will display silver pieces designed and produced by Gorham Manufacturing Company and Tiffany & Company, which were showcased at the exposition. Another gallery will contain a Benedictine candelabra and a stained-glass window created by Louis Comfort Tiffany, in addition to ephemera from the exposition, such as vintage tickets, programs and maps.
