Temporary Museum Closure! Jane Addams Hull-House Museum will be closed to the public for weekly tours and walk-ins from July 30 to September 5. This will allow the museum to complete needed facilities updates and to install our upcoming Fall exhibition. At this time, the Residents Dining Hall will be unavailable for rentals. The Museum will re-open on Jane Addams’ 158th birthday on September 6, 2018 with a full day of tours and an opening reception featuring our new exhibition: Participatory Arts: Crafting Social Change at Hull-House (September 6 – May 2019). Please mark your calendars and plan your museum visits accordingly.

During the temporary closure, the Museum’s gift shop located on the second floor of the Residents' Dinning Hall will remain open Tuesdays—Fridays, 10 AM—4 PM.
