Please note: As of August 2023, all GBH public and private studio tours are on hold until further notice due to current uncertainties related to COVID-19. The health and well-being of GBH Volunteers and our community is, and always will be, a TOP priority. We will post updates to this page once tours resume.
To ensure the safety of GBH employees, volunteers and guests, visitors on the public tour will need to check in personal belongings. Best to keep valuables at home or locked in your car. All items are subject to be screened by security upon arrival.
