Education at the Heart of Hull House

A broad array of experiences are currently being offered to visitors through a variety of methods to encourage understanding and appreciation of the multifaceted heritage story presented here. We strive to develop a ‘hands-on’ experience for visitors.

The house is presently open for group tours including student groups and commercial tour companies. We continue to develop new topics for our lecture series, seminars, field trips and focused field studies. We currently have seasonal and themed special events which provide new reasons to visit the site on a repeat basis.  These include our Hands-On Heritage Days, Living History Lectures, and Revolutionary War Days.  See our events page for upcoming events!
