Larz Anderson Museum
About the Museum

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”.

The Museum is housed in the opulent carriage house first built in 1888 by wealthy Bostonians Larz and Isabel Anderson. The building was 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 Museum includes 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 adults and children alike.


Today the Museum's primary goal is its continued support of the community through educational outreach and the preservation of its permanent collection of early automobiles. The Museum also serves as a resource for automotive and cultural interests.


Museum History and Collection

 

The idea for the Larz Anderson Auto Museum grew out of a Sunday tradition started by wealthy socialites Larz and Isabel Anderson at their Brookline, Massachusetts home. The Andersons would open the doors to their spectacular Carriage House on Sunday afternoons and share their mounting collection of marvelous American and European vehicles with the public.

 

The Andersons purchased their first vehicle, an 1899 Winton 4-hp Runabout. Today this vehicle remains on permanent display in the Museum’s lower gallery.

 

As their interest in the automobile grew, the Andersons continued to purchase and subsequently retire vehicles to the Carriage House all the way up until the passing of Isabel Anderson in 1948. The family purchased an automobile nearly every year, acquiring a total of 32 brand new motorcars during the course of their lives. Today, 14 of these vehicles, as well as many of the family’s original horse-drawn carriages, remain as part of the Museum’s permanent collection

Don't miss this very special event.

The Museum has been described as a hidden gem and an unforgettable experience.

Don’t miss this fun evening out with your facility friends and colleagues!
