The Boston Athenæum is a unique combination of a library, museum, and cultural center in a magnificent landmark building.
Founded in 1807, the Athenæum flourished in culture-starved Boston. It grew rapidly as it voraciously acquired books, art, and rare artifacts. An art gallery was added in 1827, and the library began a series of yearly exhibitions of American and European art. For nearly half a century, the Athenæum was the unchallenged center of intellectual life in Boston, and by 1851, it had become one of the largest libraries in the United States.
In 2022 The Boston Athaneaum expanded into 14 Beacon Street, bridging history with the future. The expansion created additional multi-use space ideal for entertaining.
