What makes this museum unique and special is that it is a home. A place that Theodate (the Pope family’s daughter) designed and loved. While the collection of art and artifacts was largely collected by her father Alfred. Some of the paintings were moved in (1950’s) many of them have recently been moved back to their original places within the home. Works by Monet, Degas, Whistler and Mary Cassat (a family friend) can be seen here. As well as Asian art and pottery, the family’s collection of books and eight
Barye bronzes. And of course the gardens!
