As of last year, The Cooper Hewitt has digitized more than 200,000 objects in the design museum's collection, making the diverse and comprehensive collection available online. The Collection Browser is available on tables installed throughout the museum, and visitors can use a Collection Pen (above), to save objects to personal collections available on a smartphone or computer. Through August 20, explore The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s, an exhibit that includes everything from posters and furniture to a glamorous Egyptian motif bracelet encrusted with diamonds, sapphires, and black pearls.

The Cooper Hewitt is located at 2 East 91st Street, NYC.
