Hours, Exhibition, and Tour Information


Maker & Muse: Women and Early Twentieth Century Art Jewelry features more than two hundred and fifty pieces of jewelry created in the early decades of the twentieth century. During this vibrant period, jewelry makers in the world’s centers of design created audacious new styles in response to the growing industrialization of the world and the changing role of women in society.

The Richard H. Driehaus Museum
The Museum is open for self-guided visitation during regular hours of operation: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
