Group Visit Policy

Due to the nature of the collection and the high attendance during vacation weeks, we cannot accommodate groups of 10 or more during School Vacation Week.

Education and community programs are made possible thanks in part to support from the Barr Foundation, Josephine and Louise Crane Foundation, Mary Elizabeth and Adam Kirsch, Lenoir Charitable Trust, Liberty Mutual Foundation, Janet Burke Mann Foundation, Rowland Foundation, Polly Thayer Starr Charitable Trust, and the Succop Family Charitable Foundation.

These programs are also supported in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, which receives support from the State of Massachusetts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
