The old Carnegie Mansion sets the stage for the midsize, historical and modern design museum, with a garden area for lounging. Exhibitions focus on contemporary design that’s fun to look at, whether it’s crazy Ingo Maurer lamps, fashion made from felt, or 19th-century decorative items. Don’t miss the gift shop, which is filled with covetable accessories by indie designers.
