Museo delle arti decorative DeWitt Wallace

Non confondere il DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum per una boutique di antiquariato; tutto in questo spazio è per vedere, non per comprare. Il museo espone mobili, metalli, ceramiche, vetri, dipinti, stampe, armi da fuoco e tessuti americani e britannici dal XVII al XIX secolo. Ci sono 15 gallerie separate e il sito ha la reputazione di mostrare le "cose belle" della vita. In particolare, il museo ospita la più grande collezione di mobili del sud americano e una delle più grandi collezioni di ceramiche britanniche al di fuori dell'Inghilterra.

Per completare le collezioni, il museo educa il pubblico attraverso conferenze ed eventi musicali. C'è anche una galleria di ritratti nei locali, che consente ai visitatori di mettere faccia a faccia con il lusso degli stili di vita dimostrati dalle collezioni. Il museo è stato aperto nel 1985 nella storica Williamsburg, in Virginia, e prende il nome da DeWitt Wallace, un co-fondatore della rivistaReader's Digest .
