Exhibit Policy for Members: 

McMullen Museum Outing on Nov. 17, 2017

The museum is on the campus of Boston College where we were treated to a private tour of the Belgian Landscape exhibit and a behind-the-scenes tour of museum holdings that are not in the galleries. The group of members enjoyed the day out with lunch.
If you have a suggestion for future outings, please contact one of our Board members.
