Up Close Tour

Three Notables

Up Close Tours encourage visitors to look closely at materials from the Athenæum’s rich collections and consider them within a particular context.

Join Boston Athenæum docent Susan Ostberg as she leads a discussion around portraits of John Adams, Nancy Graves Cabot, and Thomas Handasyd Perkins and the complex social and historical questions they raise.

Tours are limited to 8 people and often sell out. We recommend making a reservation in advance. Walk-ins are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis if space permits.
