Take a tour inside Chicago's house museums.

Chicago has many house museums that deserve more recognition. Architectural historian Laurie Petersen takes you inside Chicago's house museums in an illustrated lecture to learn more about their owners, architects, histories, and significance.

Laurie Petersen is the editor of the fourth edition of the American Institute of Architects’ AIA Guide to Chicago, the most comprehensive guide to the city’s buildings. She also edited the third edition (2014) and was associate editor of the first two editions (1993, 2004). She is a longtime writer for Chicago Architect magazine, and she lectures about Chicago architecture throughout the Chicago area. She is also a docent who leads tours at Crow Island School in Winnetka and Charnley-Persky House in Chicago.
