The Driehaus Museum was once a Chicago Mansion. 
Below:  Stairs from entryway to 2nd floor  Note clock.
Every room had beautiful fireplaces with surrounds
made of unique materials.
This beautiful glass dome was in the ceiling
of the library.
Another beautiful fireplace.

These stain glass windows are in
a sitting room. 
The circle in the center of each window
is actually a dome arched towards the room.

These old pictures give some idea of the opulence
of this mansion.

From this second floor you can see stairs that
go to the ballroom on the third floor.
Ballrooms were on third floors so that guests
would travel through several stories of the
house to see all kinds of art the owners
wanted to show off.
