Join us as we celebrate you on this special day of extra member benefits!

During regular Museum hours, you can share the Gardner with family and friends by bringing one additional guest beyond the regular benefits of your membership.

Participate in fun self-guided activities, and learn more about the collection with behind-the-scenes spotlight talks throughout the day. Enjoy a free gift and double your discount at Café G and Gift at the Gardner for 20% off your dining and shopping experience.

There will be three different spotlight talks throughout the day that you won't want to miss:


11 am and 2 pm

Spanish Cloister, Palace, 1st Floor


12 pm and 3 pm

Tapestry Room, Palace, 2nd Floor


1 pm and 4 pm

Titian Room, Palace, 3rd Floor


Please note, the Museum will be open to the public for regular business hours. We look forward to seeing you there!
