Share Your Stories

Public Housing MuseumWe are interested in gathering the life stories and special memories about residents' experiences living in public housing communities in Chicago and other cities. These stories will become part of the National Public Housing Museum's living history archives and exhibitions.

We also want to invite former and current public housing residents to lend or donate their special photographs and other public housing artifacts and memorabilia to the Museum's permanent and special exhibitions.

To share your stories with the new Museum or to tell us about special memorabilia you may want to donate, please click here.

We are also interested in referrals to public housing residents and former residents who may have an interest in sharing their stories with the Museum.

If you or someone you know would like to share their stories or special public housing memorabilia with the Museum, please tell them about the National Public Housing Museum and share the link to this website.
