Tips

  • Worth a visit as much for the history as the architecture. Follow it up with a visit to the Gropius House in Lincoln, MA to see a livable, family home that still meets rigorous modernist standards!
  • The house itself was pretty disappointing (when compared to Mies' Barcelona Pavilion). However, the grounds and underground art gallery were impressive
  • Coolest tour we've ever been to
  • 194998
  • Reserve your tickets in advance! There's a limited capacity tour and they're usually sold out.
  • Show your I blast card and get a postcard and pencil set!!!
  • Ridiculously cool architecture, landscape and history. But nothing really prepares you for the underground art vaults. So awesome.
