Jane Addams' Hull-House Museum

Time Out says

A standing testament to the work of humanitarian Jane Addams, this museum is housed in the home she opened in 1889 to serve people in need, including a young Benny Goodman, who learned to play clarinet there. The text-intensive displays supplement paintings that hung at the settlement, pottery and tableware created through her community art program, her desk and, next door, the dining hall where she and residents shared meals. A “History on Call” service allows visitors to use their cell phones and dial up recordings made by famous intellectuals (author Studs Terkel and cultural theorist Vijay Preshad to name two) regarding some of the exhibits as well as the late, noteworthy peers who made Hull-House their home.
