“Donation worthy free attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Very nice stop - enjoyed being able to explore the different rooms open. Really liked the number of hands on exhibits. Surprised by the quality of each area. Be sure to grab one of the free bound booklets that tells you about the artists of the Hull House over the years.

“Women's History, please go see!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Really enjoyed our visit here. I am a big fan of Jane Addams and all the other settlement workers. I didn't learn too much here since I already knew so much, but it was fantastic actually to be there and look at all the displays. My husband and 2 young sons (ages 11 & 15) had never heard of Jane Addams, but they were really impressed with all that she and her fellow women did. If you have even a slight interest in women's history you should definitely make a trip here. But honestly, everyone shoudl know about the work these women did in the late 19th century going into 20th. Thousands of immigrants and the "forgotten" were empowered through women like Jane Addams and Florence Kelley (wish they would have had more about her). Benny Goodman was one of the many children that was helped by the Hull House! I really wanted to go to the GIft SHop but ran out of time.

“Very neat landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

I had always known about Jane Addams when I was a little girl, so the experience of seeing Hull House was amazing to me. The reason I am reviewing this place is that my Husband who was not interested in going at all and knew nothing of Jane Addams actually really liked the Museum. He felt moved by her and all the hard work that Hull House did. He learned a lot and really enjoyed the experience. I recommend anyone that visits Chicago to go.
