Description

In Naturally Beautiful: Uncovering Nature in the 19th-Century Home, Homewood Museum mines its impressive collection of decorative arts to explore how environmental factors shaped tastes and trends in home furnishings in the early American republic. From mahogany furniture that resulted in mass deforestation to lithographs that celebrated the new nation's natural splendor, the house-wide exhibition reveals early Americans' complex relationship to their environment and Baltimore's role as a bustling port of trade and taste-making city. The exhibition is on view Sept. 23, 2021, to March 27, 2022.

The exhibition is included with regular admission to the museum. The museum offers guided tours on the hour, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Due to the ongoing pandemic, tours must be booked in advance. We cannot guarantee walk-in admission at this time. For full visitor information, visit https://museums.jhu.edu.

In accordance with the policies of the museum's parent institution, the Johns Hopkins University, all visitors to Homewood Museum are required to wear a mask when inside campus buildings. See current university COVID-19 guidelines online.
