I love Jane Addams, and as a social worker I may be biased. I absolutely love this museum. Great place to take a group. Excellent source of the history of Chicago and the United States.

We enjoyed our visit to Hull House. I knew only a little of the story, and liked the facility and history a good deal. The recommended donation for entry is $5. The dining hall is adjacent and included, but doesn't currently offer much.

Being a social worker and reading the biography of Jane Addams as a 3rd grader, having the chance to be at this historic home of the mother of social work was beyond words! Simply amazing!!
