The Hemingway Foundation, owner of the Hemingway Birthplace Museum on Oak Park Avenue, has begun virtual tours of the lovely relic. In a lively twist, the tours are live on the Google Meet platform. Hemingway docents conduct the tours twice a day at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. from Wednesday to Sunday. You'll hear the fascinating stories of the complicated Hemingway family and how the family and the Oak Park community shaped young Ernie.

You need to make a reservation at least six hours in advance and the tours are limited to 15 people. Sign up at
