Getting Around Town: Four Centuries of Mapping Boston in Transit

All Day
Central Library in Copley Square


How do Bostonians get from here to there in a city full of trains, trolleys, ferries, and more? Whether in the familiar colored lines of today’s MBTA map or the complicated timetables of long-vanished omnibus routes, maps have long been an indispensable instrument for getting around town. This exhibition features an extraordinary collection of transit maps dating from the seventeenth century to the present, and invites questions about how people have moved around the city in the past, present, and future.

Free to all visitors. Closed Mondays. For open hours, visit the Map Center's website.
