Current Health & Safety Protocols

Masks are required while inside the building in adherence with recent public health guidance to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in areas with ‘substantial’ transmission, out of care and consideration of our staff and users, and in alignment with other area cultural institutions.

Scheduling an appointment is required. We are currently open for appointments on Thursdays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Although many of our collections have been digitized, several are stored in an off-site facility and we require at least two weeks to ensure the collection you need can be delivered in time for your appointment. Please email or call 617-226-1245 for more information and to schedule your appointment.
