The Russell Museum has several offerings for groups:
An in-person visit. The museum is available for visitors to explore at their own pace; groups of 10 or more are requested to make a reservation. We recommend 45 minutes for a group visit, which includes an introduction by one of our docents and time for self-guided exploration. If your group is larger than 20 people, we can split them into smaller groups to do the visit back-to-back. We recommend the museum for 8th grade and up.
A 45-minute virtual field trip includes information on Mass General history, the ether anesthesia story, some history of Mass General’s responses to other crises in the past, and information on Mass General’s response to the pandemic.
The one-hour Ask Mass General: Health Careers Q&A program gives students a chance to ask the panelists about health careers. Panelists may be from any field of health care – patient care, research and health-care-specific administrative roles. We aim to have two to three panelists with different job roles at each program.
For more information or to schedule, please write us.
Unfortunately the Ether Dome remains closed to the public.
