Cooper Hewitt is the nation’s only museum dedicated to historic and contemporary design, with a collection of over 210,000 design objects spanning thirty centuries. Located in the landmark Andrew Carnegie mansion and boasting a beautiful public garden, Cooper Hewitt makes design come alive with unique temporary exhibitions and installations of the permanent collection.


Interactive galleries where visitors explore the collection digitally and engage in the design process; an Immersion Room where visitors can discover Cooper Hewitt’s wallcoverings as they were intended to be viewed.

We encourage the use of the Subway and bus.
