October 22, 2016: Behind the scenes at the Old State House
Updated October 19: This was sold by May, but we had a few cancellations. These spots will go quickly. Check below to see if there are any left. Visit the Old State House (OSH) where exhibition staff will take a deep dive into the major changes that the Bostonian Society is undertaking to interpret the building as an 18th-century site. Particular discussion will focus on the reinterpretation of the OSH Council Chamber as a period room filled with reproductions meant to create a hands-on interactive space. Three years after opening the space, staff will share the success and challenges of this hybrid exhibition.
End the morning with a historic look at Boston from the OSH tower and cupola, normally off-limits to visitors.
