We have taken all precautions to ensure your safety, as well as our staff. As per the guidelines sanctioned by the State and the Town of Brookline, masks are a requirement or you will not be allowed entry into the Museum.

Also, in keeping with the mandates, we are limiting our capacity at any given time. You may have to wait outside, where you can enjoy the Park, until other visitors have exited the Carriage House.

Effective March 22, 2021, all visitors and returning residents entering Massachusetts are advised to follow the Commonwealth’s new travel advisory as detailed here. The Commonwealth has made great progress to slow the spread of COVID-19 and gradually re-open the economy, and all visitors and returning residents have a responsibility to help us keep transmission levels as low as possible.

Sanitizing stations have been installed in several convenient places around the Museum.

We expect that all visitors will follow the 6’ apart rule as well as our “one way” signs in order to create a safe flow of traffic.

Regular cleaning and sanitizing of high-touch areas will be done frequently and systematically as needed.

Members always get in to the Museum free, please remember to bring your membership card. We hope to see you soon at the home of “America’s Oldest Car Collection.”



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 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.
