Educational Resources


There are free public docent-led tours every Sunday at 2 p.m. To schedule a private group tour, please call 617.552.8587 or email Rachel Chamberlain at least two weeks in advance. The volunteer docents will tailor their presentations to your group's age level and interests. All tours are free, although if scheduled outside the Museum's regular hours, there will be a security charge.

Student Ambassadors

Starting in Fall 2016, the McMullen Museum is pleased to offer 26 Boston College undergraduate students an opportunity to become paid Student Ambassadors. Ambassadors work approximately 10 hours a week collaborating on student programs, acting as museum attendants, selling catalogues, contributing to social media, and assisting with various museum-related projects. In return Ambassadors learn about the different facets of a museum, including arts education, programming, public relations, web development, collections management, and development. Through the Ambassador program, students are invited to explore relevant topics in contemporary museum studies and contribute to a dialogue on how our museum can better serve its student community and the greater Boston public.

The McMullen Museum will be recruiting Boston College freshman in August 2016; however, the application is now closed to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Recruitment for the 2017-2018 academic year will open again in April 2017. For further information on this program, please contact our Education Outreach Specialist, Rachel Chamberlain, at
