*FULL* Fort Point Channel Bridge Tour

As a tie-in to Family Design Day, Boston Bridges, civil engineer Reed Brockman will lead this two-hour tour of the Fort Point Channel bridges. Bridges that slide, bridges that swing, bridges that swivel? Boston has plenty of examples. Explore with Brockman all these engineering marvels while learning more about local architecture.

Dress for the weather (or wear your Halloween costume!) and wear comfortable shoes. The Fort Point tour lasts two hours, but Brockman will continue the tour to the Zakim Bridge for the most adventurous participants.

This event is *FULL* please see below for upcoming events.


This family program is designed for parents and children aged five and older. A maximum ratio of one adult per three children is required. BSA Space is one block from South Station. Enter through BSA Space’s public entrance, and go up the iconic green staircase. The program will begin promptly at 10:30 am.

Family Design Day programs encourage children and adults to observe, explore, and design together. In these two-hour hands-on workshops, families are introduced to architecture and design through exhibition tours, walking tours, or slideshows and then complete a hands-on design activity. Architects and design educators lead the activities focused on the built environment of Boston and the world.
