Art and Architecture Tour
September 29, 2015 at 3:00 pm–4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 3:00pm on Tuesday and Thursday, repeating until October 1, 2015
Join a Boston Athenæum docent for an hour-long tour focused on the architectural history of the Athenæum’s building and on the institution’s fine arts collection. The Athenæum’s current home—its fifth—opened in 1849 and has been expanded and renovated twice, once from 1913 to 1915 and again from 1999 to 2002.
Special for ArtWeek, tour participants will also receive free admission to the Norma Jean Calderwood Gallery at the Athenæum on September 26 & 27.
Can’t make it to the Athenæum during ArtWeek? Tours are offered every Tuesday and Thursday at 3:00 p.m. The First floor and gallery are open to the public seven days a week.
Reservations are required.
Please call 617-227-0270
Tours are limited in size, so book early.
