Finding Design Centers Across America

In addition to the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City (left) and the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. (right), you can find regional design centers all across the country. You can find design exhibits and events in your state, wherever you live, if you know where to look.

The World of Coca-Cola, for example, is a museum in Atlanta, Georgia that traces the history of the company and the changes in design for its iconic bottles, logo, and advertising over the years. Click on the heading above to check it out.

Wisconsin has several museums devoted to design icons. They have the Harley-Davidson Museum and the William F. Eisner American Museum of Advertising and Design both in Milwaukee and the Kohler Design Center in Kohler, Wisconsin.

Take a look at the three articles below about these design centers. Can your students find the design centers in your state?
