Jane Addams' Hull-House Museum reviews

I was introduced to Jane Addams' Hull House when the USPS issued a commemorative in 1989, and I knew nothing of her. So while in Chicago recently, I visited. Compassionate toward Southside slum... more »
This Museum is a great place to learn about a brilliant, visionary, social worker. Jane Addams, a suffragette who espoused equal rights should be enjoyed and shared equally amongst all races and for all men and women. The oil paintings are pristine, and really lovely; the docent who expounded on the history was very knowledgeable friendly warm and engaging. A great place for a family visit, a great place to bring young people from a class. I highly recommend visiting here to learn and enjoy.
The museum's layout was very organized and it was easy to follow along with the tour which was provided. Everything inside the museum ranging from Jane Addams' clothing to personal diaries to even her furniture is 100% authentic, and what she'd actually used and worn during her lifetime. The operating hours here can be a bit limited, but if you plan your visit accordingly, you'll still be able to see so much in just one day! Jane's personal letters and diaries, in particular, were what had been most noteworthy during my visit. It felt almost surreal, taking a step back in time more than 100 years, and seeing what one of America's most famous social workers had been feeling, thinking, and journaling about back in her day. This would definitely be a place worth visiting, the next time that you're in Chicago. There's just so much to see and experience.
