Youth Group Visits

Important Update for Visiting Youth Groups

The relocation of the Unitarian Univeralist Association's (UUA's) headquarters to 24 Farnsworth St. in Boston, MA, is scheduled for mid-May. As a result, tours of our current 25 Beacon St. building have been suspended as we prepare for this historic move. We plan to initiate regular tours of our new headquarters after General Assembly. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding!

Please scroll down this page to find suggested alternative activities for your group, or for more ideas, please contact the UUA's Information and Public Witness office by calling (617) 948-6103 or emailing at info @

The Eliot and Pickett House will remain open to visitors until June 30, 2014. You can find more information about alternative lodging options by visiting the Blue Boat blog from the UUA's office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries.

Historic UU Walking Tours of Boston

The Harvard Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Students (HUUMS) is now offering two hour walking tours of Boston that feature important sites of Unitarian Universalist history. The tour was designed in collaboration with John Buehrens, former UUA President, and includes over 15 stops; full of stories, rare anecdotes and fun facts about our faith. A tour of Harvard Divinity School, including the historic Emerson Chapel, is also available.

Walking tours are ideal for visiting youth and coming of age groups, as well as adult religious education trips and family excursions to Boston. Dates and times are flexible and tours are available year round. 
For more information or to discuss pricing, please e-mail HUUMS directly at
