Virtual Events

Take clients and employees behind-the-scenes of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum through customizable virtual events.


Gardner Heist:

On March 18, 1990, 13 objects and works were stolen from the museum in the world’s largest art heist. Our Director of Security and Chief Investigator, Anthony Amore, will retrace the steps of the thieves, share crime scene photographs, and discuss the ongoing investigation.

Art, Technology, & Science:

Restoring and preserving objects and works of art from around the globe presents a number of challenges. Go behind-the-scenes with Gardner conservators to learn about the role of science and cutting-edge technology in preserving this complex collection.

Wine & Art Tour:

A sommelier will lead guests on an interactive wine tasting that features themes from our magnificent galleries. This virtual tour will dive into works of art as well as an educational wine tasting. Wine tasting kits are customizable and can be delivered to participants.

Cooking Demo:

French-trained Chef Pete Crowley will demonstrate creating a dinner of "masterpiece” proportions. Guests will enjoy learning cooking tips and the artistic inspiration for the meal. Recipes will be sent to all attendees, and dinner is available for delivery.

Team Building Workshops:

Connect or unwind through these interactive activities that draw from our exceptional collection to promote conversation led by a Museum Educator. Choose from our predesigned options or create a customized program that focuses on workplace goals, such as leadership, mindfulness, or collaboration.


Our packages are customized to match your needs, and can include add-ons like complimentary tickets, special gifts, or wine and food deliveries.
