Brookline: Larz Anderson Car Museum: Cars & Coffee (free)

We'll go to the Museum which is free on this Saturday. We'll be joining a car enthusiast group who can teach us about these fine cars on exhibit as we sip coffee. Then go for a local walk around Jamaica Pond or Arnold Arboretum. The optional walking part would be about 4 miles with the Boston Walking Meetup Group.

Closest T station is Forest Hills, 1.1  mile walk.

Cars and Coffee was created for car enthusiasts to meet up early on a Saturday morning. The Museum opens early at 8am on these designated Saturdays for your viewing. Grab a coffee, a snack and check out some of the Boston area’s best cars.

This event is free, but if you become a member, it includes free admission to all the Museum’s lawn events. http://larzanderson.org/events/lawn-events/carscoffee2014/

The Museum is housed in the opulent carriage house first built by wealthy Bostonians Larz and Isabel Anderson. It is now home to the Anderson Motorcar Collection as well as revolving exhibits featuring rare automobiles, automobilia, automotive artwork and vintage fashion. These exhibitions are a feast for the eyes and provide a great educational experience for both kids and adults.

Just ten minutes from downtown Boston and nestled inside the 64 beautiful acres of Larz Anderson Park, the Museum is home to “America’s Oldest Car Collection”. These automobiles form the Museum’s permanent collection and are housed within the Carriage House, built in 1888 and designed by the city architect of Boston, Edmund M. Wheelwright, who was also responsible for several notable Boston structures like the Boston Public Library.

The Larz Anderson Auto Museum also offers enjoyable and informative tours, with varied and in-depth discussions on the automobile and its impact on society. Aside from the tour, we offer four different educational programs that range from kindergarten to high school and cover a variety of topics from early transportation to automotive design. Each tour offers hands on artifacts and real life observational tools. Visit the Larz Anderson Auto Museum for a day of exploration and fun that will create lasting memories for you and your group that is guaranteed to stay with you long after you leave.

      I am so sorry, Karen. My GPS was not getting me to the T. When I got there finally, I didn't see you and wasn't sure which side to look on. Guess I won't trust GPS any time soon. Please forgive me.
