Explore Cooper Hewitt’s historic mansion, built for Andrew Carnegie from 1899-1902 as a family home, and plan a renovation to make it your own. Follow a self-guided scavenger hunt to learn more about the mansion, which once included a conservatory, a billiard room, and a cellar coal car that traveled over a miniature train track.

Then, imagine you are moving in. Using the original floor plan, design your blueprints. What would you keep? What might you add or change to turn the mansion into your dream house?

Drop in any time 11 am–1 pm or 2–4 pm. Designed for youth and their adult guardian/caregivers. No registration required, first come, first served. Adults must stay with their youth during the activity and are encouraged to participate.
