Praise From
Our Travelers

I've been a 10 plus year group leader with Friendship Tours & The Ship Shop and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for day trips, overnights and cruises. We can always be sure that if the "Friendship Family" is involved it will be a organized, safe and enjoyable trip.

Boston Glass Flowers
December 13, 2018

Boston Glass Flowers<br>Thursday<br>December 13, 2018</br>
Picture a giant, hollow ball made of glass, painted inside as if it were a political map of the Earth turned inside-out. You are inside the Mapparium at the Mary Baker Eddy Library. This huge globe shows the world’s boundaries frozen in time circa 1935 - see how much has changed!

We are also invited to a special Organ Demonstration at the magnificent First Church of Christ, Scientist, the Mother Church on the beautiful Christian Science Plaza.

We’re in for a treat at the Grafton Street Bistro in Cambridge. Choose from Seared Scallops, Roasted Salmon, Steak Tips or Roasted Vegetable Terrine. All served with salad, clam chowder and a tasty dessert!

Next, be amazed by the realistic flowers made of blown glass at The Glass Flowers exhibit in the Harvard Museum of Natural History. Between 1886 to 1936, Austrian glass makers created 4,000glass models of 830 species of flowers & plants. Every single bit of these flowers including the roots, stems, leaves, & even dirt are made of glass. Enjoy a guided tour of the Glass Flowers exhibit.

Estimated return times: 8:00 p.m. in East Hartford and 8:30 p.m. in West Hartford.
