In an effort to interpret the legacy of Jane Addams, the Hull-House residents and neighbors, and draw connections to present day issues of social justice, the museum offers guided tours, dialogues, and film screenings for prescheduled groups of 7–25, kindergarteners through adults. Tours take place in the original Hull Home, where Jane Addams and Ellen Gates Starr founded the Settlement in 1889. Groups are encouraged to schedule tours at least 2 weeks in advance. If you must cancel your reservation, please notify the museum staff immediately.
Our educational programs adhere to the State of Illinois Common Core and Social Science Standards.

The museum regrets that lunchroom facilities are not available. However, groups may make plans to visit one of the ethnic restaurants located in the nearby Italian or Greek communities.
