Up Close Tour: The Founders

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

Boston Athenæum Docent Dale Linder will investigate objects in the Athenæum’s special collections that shed light on the nation’s early history. Join the discussion and get up close to busts of founding fathers that once graced the halls of Monticello and portraits by some of the United States’ most renowned painters. This 30-minute tour will delight whether you’ve seen Hamilton or not.
