Founded in 1807, the Boston Athenaeum is a private membership library and cultural center. John Quincy Adams, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Lydia Maria Child, and many other New England luminaries were members of the Athenaeum. Located in the heart of downtown Boston, steps from Boston Common and the State House, the Athenaeum is a fabulous retreat; this tour will feature glimpses of its large and rich collection including rare books, art, sculpture, and prints.
There is no charge for this tour, but advance registration is required.
