Art & Architecture Tour

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Central Library in Copley Square


The landmark Central Library in Copley Square features notable architecture and design components spanning three centuries, as well as significant art and decorative installations. A summary of key points of interest can be found on our Art & Architecture page.

Regularly scheduled public Art & Architecture tours, led by trained BPL guides, are free and do not require a reservation for parties of five or fewer people. Tours last approximately one hour and start in the McKim Building Vestibule, just through the Dartmouth Street entrance. 

Group sizes will be limited to twenty-five people per guide and are subject to guide availability. To secure a place on a tour, please visit the McKim Welcome Desk any time in the hour leading up to the start time to receive a tour sticker for you and any members of your party. Please note that we are unable to accommodate individual parties larger than five people on these tours.

Unauthorized guides are not permitted to lead tours within the library. When planning your visit, please make note of days when the library will be closed due to holidays; inclement weather may also affect opening hours. Information on accessibility and other tour details can be found on our Tours page.
