Discover Boston

As one of the nation’s oldest cities, Boston has a rich cultural scene and is home to exceptional museums and outstanding private collections. The Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and the Harvard Art Museums have all recently undergone state-of-the-art renovations. The city is also a hub of American history with venerable landmarks and lively street life. Let Executive Director Andrew J. Walker be your guide for all the best that Boston has to offer with behind-the-scenes museum tours and visits to private collections and galleries.

This trip is for Amon Carter Circle members only; space is limited.

Program for families with children on the autism spectrum

This is a free program for families with children who are 5 to 12 years old and on the autism spectrum. Families will have time to explore artworks in the galleries and get creative during a hands-on, art-making experience!

While the needs of individuals with autism are the focus of this program, it is also intended to be fun for parents, siblings (of all ages), and other relatives!

This program is offered on the second Saturday of every month.
