You can get the scoop on these topics and much more with an Outdoor Building Tour led by one of the knowledgeable guides from the Friends of Music Hall. You’ll learn about the symbolism and design of Music Hall’s architecture, the challenges of the building’s construction, and the people who made it happen back in 1878.
