Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum

Part of the Smithsonian Institution since 1967, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York was founded in 1897 by Amy, Eleanor, and Sarah Hewitt as part of The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. Today the museum is one of the largest design museums in the world, with a total catalog of more than 250,000 objects. The site is full of helpful material, ranging from the pragmatic (upcoming and ongoing exhibitions) to the playful (a series of very entertaining online games). Of course, users must be sure to check out the National Design Awards page, where they will have the opportunity to learn about the best designs of the year in a host of categories, including architecture, communications, and fashion. Finally, those persons interested in obtaining a master's degree in the history of decorative arts and design will want to learn about this rather compelling program offered jointly with the Parsons School of Design.
