Visit the Gallery

Information for visiting our gallery in person in Copley Square

COVID-19 closure
In-person access to the Map Center is currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please visit our COVID updates page for more information.

Our exhibitions Gallery is free to the public, and no advance booking is necessary to view exhibitions. Plan to set aside between 30 minutes and 1½ hours for a full experience in the Gallery, though you are always welcome to spend more or less time, and to come back for multiple visits. The Gallery features captions and activities for children and families as well as adults.
