The Bloomberg Connects app provides an exciting new way to discover Dorich House Museum and includes detailed room guides, additional information about many of the objects in our collection, museum trails about our Russian Collection and Dora Gordine’s Subjects and Sitters, and audio clips to help visitors picture what Dorich House would have been like during Gordine’s lifetime.
