Free tours will run Tuesdays at 10:00am and Thursdays at 4:00pm beginning August 26 through September 16. Look for our sandwich board signage in the Public Garden at the Charles St. entrance to see if that day’s tours are cancelled.
Tours on Thursday, September 2, Tuesday, September 7, and Thursday September 9 are cancelled.
Private group tours may be arranged, with a required donation included. To inquire about a private tour, contact the Friends office at 617-723-8144 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
