A group of historic house museums have banded together to tell Chicago’s stories in a new way.
We formed At Home in Chicago, a diverse family of more than twenty former residences spanning nearly 180 years of the region’s history. Each house museum, with its distinctive architecture and collections, is a living artifact of the fascinating lives of people who shaped, or were shaped by, the city. Large or small, famous or idiosyncratic, each has a unique and essential story to tell.
Bringing them together for the first time, At Home in Chicago makes planning your visit easy. But this is also a journey of discovery, and a chance to explore the unexpected common threads—cultural, historical, architectural—that knit us together.
