The Peacock Room Comes to America

By Smithsonian Institution

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Explore artist James McNeill Whistler’s famed Peacock Room in the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery and learn about its dynamic, cosmopolitan history in this fully interactive, visually stunning app. A scrolling panorama offers a virtual tour of the room as it is installed today. Tap on the paintings, ceramics, or decorative elements for more information and related multimedia content, such as audio guides by Freer|Sackler curators. An interactive timeline illuminates the room’s changing appearance as it moved from Victorian London to Gilded Age Detroit and finally came to rest at the Freer Gallery, where it has been on display since the museum opened in 1923. The app includes images of more than 250 Asian ceramics, detailed views of the room’s architecture and decoration, and a rich selection of archival documents and photographs. You can also curate your own installation by selecting pots to display on the Peacock Room sideboard, and then create a postcard of your design to share with friends. In addition, you can watch a video that takes you behind the scenes of the recent reinstallation. To learn more, visit the Freer|Sackler website at and “The Story of the Beautiful: Freer, Whistler, and Their Points of Contact” at
