The museum consists of two buildings: the Hull Home, which features exhibitions about the history of Hull-House, and the Residents’ Dining Hall, which holds an event space, the museum’s gift shop, and staff offices.

Pride Month: Gender and Sexuality Tours

Join us this Pride Month and explore early 20th century stories of gender non-conformity, diverse definitions of family and friendship, and fierce self-expression. Hull-House was world-renowned for supporting immigrant rights and world peace, but did you know it was also a space for same-sex love, partnership, and relationships? We will consider how history connects with today’s struggles for social justice and how we might expand our own notions of gender and sexuality. Beginning June 6, join us for a free tour at 1:00 PM on Wednesdays throughout the month of June.
