Everyone was excellent, from the tour guide to her assistant. Knowledgeable with stories. I only wish they had a bit more content given the cost of entry. A visit to the Fifa office across the street, which is located in a house that is a contemporary of the Glessner House, would be a welcome addition.

If you enjoy history and seeing how people loved in the 19th century, this is a beautiful preserved home of a prominent Chicago family. Unusual because the contents were preserved by family members, so you are seeing the house as it truly was when the Glessner family lived here.

It was a lovely space for the private event I attended. It's a rustic, but warm feel.

If you're into house museums, this one is definitely worth a visit. Located a little ways south of the Loop, about a 25 minute walk from the Museum Campus, it's a remnant of a once-regal neighborhood. In that respect, the house stands out as being distinctly out of step. Inside, the house is architecturally fascinating, with lots of dramatic design features. Lots of beautiful (though restrained, especially in comparison to what you'd see at the Driehaus museum) woodwork throughout, and a bright airy design that exploits natural light. The tours include the facilities for the house staff, something that always scores points with me. It's pretty big so the tour lasts an hour or more. Our tour guide was delightfully enthusiastic and quite knowledgeable. One of my favorite house museums ever.

This is a hidden gem. Not only a unique piece of American architecture, but a time capsule of the original furnishings. Whether you enjoy Chicago history or a fan of architecture the Glessner House is a must see. I have visited several times the past twenty years and there is always something new to see. It seems they have been restoring several rooms the past few years. These are great tours!
