Tuesday, November 28, 2017, 12:30 PM
Edward M. Kennedy Institute
210 Morrissey Blvd
Located on the Boston campus of UMass, the 68,000 square foot Edward M. Kennedy Institute includes a full-scale reproduction of the US Senate Chamber, a model of Sen. Kennedy’s Capitol Hill office and interactive exhibits. During our self-guided visit we’ll have the opportunity to participate in two programs in the Senate Chamber: Today’s Vote, a live floor debate on an active piece of legislation being considered by the U.S. Senate; and Great Senate Debates, which blends live performance with historic film footage and archival images in a 20-minute program that examines the context and importance of crucial turning points in Senate history, and reflects on their impact on our lives today. Meet at the turnstiles at MGH/Charles Station for the Red Line to the JFK/UMass station and free shuttle bus to the Institute. BHV members, guests of members and prospective members: $13. Trip price covers admission to the Institute.
