A short walk from the Ernest Hemingway Birthplace Museum, housed inside the Oak Park Arts Center, the Ernest Hemingway Museum is host to permanent and temporary exhibits that explore the author's life. Kiosks fashioned from historic doors hold exhibits of rare photos and artifacts. Special exhibits highlight Hemingway's love of nature and the arts, along with his involvement in both World Wars and the movies. A museum bookshop features books by and about the author, gift items, videos, and posters. Guided tours are available.
