william-merritt-chase-300x225Saturday, Dec 3,  10:30 am

Registration begins November 1 and ends November 18.  (Please note change in beginning and ending registration dates.)

A brilliant observer of contemporary life, an innovative painter, a skilled promoter and an important teacher, William Merritt Chase (1849-1916) was a leader in international art circles at the turn of the century. The first complete examination of the artist in over three decades, William Merritt Chase brings together approximately 80 of the artist’s finest works in both oil and pastel from public and private collections across the US. This major international traveling exhibition, co-organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Phillips Collection (Washington, DC); Fondazione Musei Civici Venezia (Venice), and the Terra Foundation for American Art, sheds new light on the work of one the leading American Impressionists.


How to Pre-Register for MFA Accessible Guided Tours

Attendance is limited and pre-registration is required by the dates listed for each program.  To pre-register or for more information, email or  phone 617-369-3302.

When you register, please indicate (in the subject line if you are emailing) the name of the tour and if you would like a neckloop or headset for the tour.

Registered participants will receive a confirmation prior to the date of the tour with entrance and cancellation information.  

Because the Gallery Tour Listening System equipment is reserved for hearing loss support group participants, the equipment is not available to other MFA Boston visitors for drop-in tours.  For that reason, guests of this program are requested to be aware of the the following policies:

  • Participants who register for accessible tours but cannot attend should note the cancellation policy on the confirmation to ensure that listening equipment is available to other visitors.  
  • Late registrations  cannot be accepted.  
  • Those who have not pre-registered may only join a tour on a standby basis and will be turned away if registration is full.  

Tours will begin promptly at start time.  Attendees should arrive 15 minutes prior to start time.  

Questions?  Contact the museum at or  phone 617-369-3302.
