The Boston Athenæum is a unique combination of library, museum, and cultural center in a magnificent landmark building. Join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Boston Athenaeum, including a special tour of the Great Boston Fire exhibit, “Revisiting the Ruins.”

Following the 150th anniversary of the Great Boston Fire, “Revisiting the Ruins” considers how this event—which ravaged Boston’s central commercial district—was pictured, described, and circulated, presenting a range of media that documented the blaze and its aftermath. This exhibition will showcase powerful artifacts from a pivotal moment in Boston’s history while prompting visitors to consider how it has been remembered (or forgotten) generations later.

This evening will begin at 6 p.m. at The Vilna for a welcome reception.
