Our “Behind the Scenes” Outings Planned for 2018

Nearly every month we head to a historic site for a one-of-a-kind experience designed for people who love history. 

Our goal is to raise awareness of little-known institutions and their collections and to gain new insights into established institutions. The outings help both the individuals and the institutions.

Notices go to the History Camp Boston mailing list and events usually fill up within a few days, sometimes even a few hours. If you’re curious about past events, scroll down and see where we’ve been.

Do you know of an organization, historic site, or individual with a private collection who would be interested in hosting our group some Saturday in 2019? We can cap the group at the size that is right for your facility, though we would like to be able to accommodate at least 15 people.
