  • A very interesting place made even better by the man leading the tour. He just gave us the facts about the home and about Hemingway’s life. He did not speculate or embellish. I had a wonderful time.  more »
  • What an amazing surprise for me to discover during my first trip in the US(Chicago) the house of Ernest Hemingway family!!!I haven't got word to describe my feelings when I visited the house...  more »

  • The house is a double treat. For those who are interested in Hemingway there is a tremendous amount of history shared about his early life in Oak Park. For house tour lovers, you get up close and personal to a grand 1890s Queen Anne Victorian - albeit not to everyone’s taste - but an excellent tour in a period-accurate, beautifully restored house. Our docent, Sue, was exceptional!
  • The place is in perfect condition, and the tour guides to a fabulous job of bringing Hemingway's childhood to life with vivid detail. I was a few minutes late but the tour guide covered the parts my friend and I missed later. They're also happy to answer any questions. Hemingway fans would find them a wealth of information and resources.
