DEPARTURE: Please note that we are leaving at exactly 9:00 AM on Saturday, March 19th, from the Chapel parking lot. This means you need to show up at 8:50 AM at the very latest. We will leave without you, if you are late!

MUSEUMS:

We will be visiting the following museums and galleries. You'll be able to visit one in the morning and another in the afternoon, so you don't have to pick just one!

DROP-OFFS: During the drive into Boston, regardless of the van you're in, you can choose to start your day at any of the four locations (listed above). The van drivers will make drop-offs at each location, starting with the Harvard Art Museums in Cambridge.

MIDDAY PICK-UPS: There will be a midday pickup that will allow you to see a second museum. For instance, if you start in the morning at the Museum of Fine Arts / Gardner Museum, you can get picked up midday and go to see the Harvard Art Museums or the South End galleries or the ICA.

RETURN: We will be picking up from the museums at 5:00 PM and returning to Gordon by approx. 5:45 PM.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Cash / credit card for lunch and for admission to the Harvard Art Museums or the ICA ($10 with student ID) or Gardner Museum ($5 with student ID). The MFA is free with your student ID and the South End galleries are always free.
  • Student ID (for free/reduced admission at museums)
  • Cell phone
  • Sketchbook/camera (optional)

MEALS:

Breakfast: We will not be stopping for breakfast along the way, so please eat ahead of time or bring food to eat in the vans.

Lunch: You will need to buy your own lunch in Boston at any of the museum cafes or nearby restaurants. You will receive a handout that morning with options near each museum.

Dinner: We will not be stopping for dinner along the way home. Plan to eat dinner on your own when you return to Gordon.
