Hull House Reviews & Ratings

  • The Museum was very suitable for children to gain wonderful knowledge. The guidance was excellent because of they explained each and everything there. The arrangements were good without getting confusion we can easily find everything.

  • This Museum is a great place to learn about a brilliant, visionary, social worker. Jane Addams, a suffragette who espoused equal rights should be enjoyed and shared equally amongst all races and for all men and women. The oil paintings are pristine, and really lovely; the docent who expounded on the history was very knowledgeable friendly warm and engaging. A great place for a family visit, a great place to bring young people from a class. I highly recommend visiting here to learn and enjoy.

  • The museum's layout was very organized and it was easy to follow along with the tour which was provided. Everything inside the museum ranging from Jane Addams' clothing to personal diaries to even her furniture is 100% authentic, and what she'd actually used and worn during her lifetime. The operating hours here can be a bit limited, but if you plan your visit accordingly, you'll still be able to see so much in just one day! Jane's personal letters and diaries, in particular, were what had been most noteworthy during my visit. It felt almost surreal, taking a step back in time more than 100 years, and seeing what one of America's most famous social workers had been feeling, thinking, and journaling about back in her day. This would definitely be a place worth visiting, the next time that you're in Chicago. There's just so much to see and experience.

  • It's beautiful and there is so much history!!! Wasn't able to go inside, as I visited on a Ghost Tour and it was night time. But the building, the history and the grounds were enough to obtain all the stars from me.

  • "Lee Young Jun PEN ART" Pen Art(General Remarks) Infinity of lines and dots have symbolism.  Such symbolism is ever changing according to the spirit’s depth.  All works are kaleidoscopic; they are usually composed of indescribable expressions.  Therefore, art’s depth also can be said to be unlimited.  Is pen art’s depth also infinite?  In other words, do the lines and dots flowing from the nib of a pen have an artistic qualification?  In this respect, it is worth thinking deeply.  Pen art begins from an essence of nature’s fundamental values.  From the standpoint of value, or color, a harmony of black and white is essential in nature.  As it is impossible to see any color in darkness, distinguishing color is an essential role of light.  That is why the soul is drawn to light.  Whiteness, or light is a spiritual reflection of the soul while blackness, or darkness is a reality of life on earth.  As the color green is an essential color of vegetation, burnt charcoal is an earthy color that will stay near black.  Blackness is heterogeneous and may be hostile to life.  If blackness belongs to the essence of nature, it also may be said to represent the image of death.  A combination of black and white constitutes degrees of lightness and darkness.  When painting black on a white background, the soul is transported to the white background.  Whiteness comes to life when contrasted with black line and black space.  In this case, soul also may be expressed through the blackness.  Soul may be transported to the black or a combination of white and black, which shed a mysterious merit to the soul or spirit.  Pen arts starts and ends from an essence of nature’s fundamental contrasts.  The primary essence is infinite and eternal while the artistic harmony of black and white can take one’s breath away.  But, this is not possible until a metamorphosis has been realized over many years and spiritual transcendence has occurred.  The transfer of spirit  occurs when one’s life experiences are projected onto the white canvas in harmony with blackness.  That is the true ‘pen art.’             Artist Lee Young Jun I am a Korean. I pioneered the " Lee Young Jun Pen Art " and Perfected the genre. I am PEN Artist "Lee Young Jun". Pen Art is the only genre is an important work In the world. The works are extremely valuable. And no one is able to work not dare to imitate. The hope my work can be sympathy to many people. Thank you.
