All Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C., including the National Zoo, and in New York City continue to be closed to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
2 East 91st Street
New York, NY
Cooper Hewitt’s extraordinary collection of wallcoverings are featured in a new high-tech space, the Immersion Room, offering visitors the unprecedented experience of using the “pen” to select digital images of wallpapers or sketch their own design and then project them onto the walls at full scale to see their impact. More than an entertaining interactive experience, the Immersion Room gives museum visitors their first opportunity to discover Cooper Hewitt’s wallcoverings as they were intended to be installed.
