Art and Architecture Tours
May 2, 2015 at 2:00 pm–3:00 pm
Step behind the Boston Athenæum’s red leather doors at 10½ Beacon Street during one of the institution’s Art and Architecture tours.
These docent-led, hour-long tours focus on the architectural history of the Athenæum’s current and fifth home, and on the institution’s fine arts collection. The Athenæum’s collection of fine art is one of the most significant to have been formed in the United States in the first half of the nineteenth century, and many paintings and sculptures from it are on view throughout the building.
Special for ArtWeek, tour participants will also receive free admission to the Norma Jean Calderwood Gallery at the Athenæum.
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
