Visiting The Museum

The Sports Museum Tour

The Sports Museum consists of a half-mile of exhibits at the TD Garden, the home of the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics. The exhibits celebrate the history and the character of Boston sports, including the teams that play in TD Garden and the others that make Boston the envy of the sports world.

 

During your visit to The Sports Museum, our Museum Assistants will guide you through The Sports Museum, which is located on the Premium Levels 5 & 6 of TD Garden. Here you will see the treasures that we have on display evidencing the rich heritage of Boston sports and the influence of sports on the social history and evolution of Boston.

 

Tours leave on the half-hour at 12:30PM, 1:30PM , 2:30PM and 3:30PM with the last tour leaving at 3:30PM and lasts for approximately one hour. Tours are walk-in only.

Looking for a one-of-a-kind experience unlike any other in Boston?  We are proud to offer Private VIP Tours for your corporate group or family outing of any size!  

Our Private VIP Tours offer a customized, private tour with Curator Richard Johnson or Associate Curator Brian Codagnone (based on availability), the two individuals responsible for The Sports Museum’s collection and exhibits. Your group will travel through Levels 5 and 6 of TD Garden to view all artifacts and exhibits featuring the Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins, Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, Boston Marathon, and more. Your group will also visit our Boston Garden Theatre, where you will receive a special presentation about the history of the Boston Garden and sports in Boston while sitting in actual seats from this historic arena.  All told, a VIP Tour provides a personal and more private experience while receiving in-depth stories about our artifacts and exhibits that you cannot hear from anyone else.

If your group is interested in learning more about the history of one team over another, or about TD Garden itself, a Private VIP Tour is the only option that allows your group to do exactly that.
