Tour the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in a private atmosphere before the Museum opens to the public. Guided by experienced Gardner Museum Teachers, you will view the Gardner's compilation of tapestries, exquisite antique furniture, and famous collections while hearing wonderful anecdotes about Mrs. Gardner's sophisticated and eclectic life and the famous heist. The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is an intimate collection of fine and decorative art and a vibrant, innovative venue for contemporary artists, musicians and scholars. Housed in a stunning 15th-century Venetian-style palace with three stories of galleries surrounding a sun-and flower-filled courtyard, the Museum provides an unusual backdrop for the viewing of art. The collection contains more than 2,500 paintings, sculptures, tapestries, furniture, manuscripts, rare books and decorative arts. The galleries house works by some of the most recognized artists in the world, including Titian, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, Manet, Degas, Whistler and Sargent.

Beginning at 9:00 a.m., enjoy Mrs. Gardner's signature cinnamon donuts and a taste of champagne-the same items was served at the Museum's opening on New Year's Day 1903. The group will depart campus at 9:20 a.m for the walk up the Fenway to the museum.
