Grand Circle Gallery celebrates a passion for travel and commitment to the arts through travel-themed exhibits that teach and inspire. Special emphasis is given to our extensive collection of vintage travel posters that date from the early 20th century up to World War II, highlighting the “Golden Age of Travel.” The poster collection evokes a romantic era when traveling was strictly for pleasure and discovery. Grand Circle Gallery is housed in Boston’s Fort Point Channel district, in a historic 19th-century brick building whose first tenants were Chase & Co., a confectionery company that patented America’s first candy machine in the early 1800s. As New England’s textile industry grew, these buildings were later used as storage for the wool trade. Today, 347 Congress Street serves as the headquarters of Grand Circle Corporation, provider of unique, international vacations for Americans over 50.
