I understand there is also a collection of Thorne rooms in Phoenix, Arizona, looks like I am going to be lucky enough to see both sets next year!

Wow!   That sounds like a wonderful visit.  I am envious   :-)  You will get to see most of the Thorne rooms. 

 

There are five museums in the US that house Thorne rooms:

 

68 in Chicago at the Art Institute

20 at the Phoenix Art Museum

9 at the Knoxville Museum of Art

1 at the Indianapolis Childrens Museum

1 at the Kaye Miniature Museum in Los Angeles

The Kaye Museum closed in 2000 and the majority of the collection  was sold off to private parties and other museums.

Thanks!  Didn't know that (about the Kaye Museum).  I kinda wonder where the last Thorne room went to ....
