    Private, Behind-the-Scenes Curator Tour

    We’d love to take you and nine guests on a private, custom behind-the-scenes tour with Dr. Kimberly S. Alexander! The tour will not only give you an opportunity to walk through our exhibition but also to learn more about fashion conservation, the MHS collections, and see items and other artifacts that didn’t make it into the exhibition. We’ll accommodate up to a group of 10 (you and nine guests) and work with you to schedule your tour between November 2018 and March 2019 at the Society in Boston, MA.

    In addition to this one-of-a-kind tour, donors at this level also receive five (5) signed copies of the publication – perfect to keep and give away!
