Attractions near UIC Pavilion, Attractions near United Center: Named after the first female to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum pays homage to her work in social justice, education, immigration and child welfare. A quest for social reform and belief in equal opportunities for all community members were driving forces behind Addams' establishment in 1889 of a settlement house in one of Chicago's immigrant neighborhoods. Documents, furniture, and plenty of photographs tell the story of this remarkable woman. Entrance to the museum is free although donations are requested. There is plenty to read, view and touch (and some things you can't) as well as a short film depicting life in the late 19th century/early 20th century. Addam's actual bedroom is in the building where one can walk in and be surrounded by her desk, clothing, diaries, books and personal photographs.
