DAR Museum

Overview of organization: The DAR Museum collection features more than 30,000 examples of decorative and fine arts, including objects made or used in America prior to the Industrial Revolution. Furniture, silver, paintings, ceramics and textiles, such as quilts and costumes, are exhibited in 31 period rooms and two galleries. The period rooms represent a wide range of dates, locations and functions. A 1700 New England hall, an eighteenth century Georgia tavern and an 1850s whaling station are just some of the interiors that make up the core of the DAR Museum exhibits. The main gallery features changing exhibitions and displays of selected quilts and coverlets.
