The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum serves as a dynamic memorial to social reformer Jane Addams, the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, and her colleagues whose work changed the lives of their immigrant neighbors as well as national and international public policy. The Museum preserves and develops the original Hull-House
site for the interpretation and continuation of the historic settlement house vision, linking research, education, and social engagement
The Museum is located in two of the original settlement house buildings - the Hull Home, a National Historic Landmark, and the Residents' Dining Hall, a beautiful Arts and Crafts building that has welcomed some of the world's most important thinkers, artists, and activists.
The Museum and its many vibrant programs make connections between the work of Hull-House residents and important contemporary social issues.
