Junior Members

Curious kids feel right at home at Glessner House Museum.

George and Fanny Glessner grew up on Chicago's exclusive Prairie Avenue in their parents' extraordinary winter home, a special place filled with art, music, and self-discovery.  Encouraged by their mom and dad to pursue their own unique interests, George and Fanny were curious kids who never stopped learning. Explore what their life was like, how their family's experiences shaped Chicago history, and why their unusual house at 1800 S. Prairie Avenue is now a National Historic Landmark.

Encourage your curious kid.
