$77 members/$85 non-members

Join us for a special day-long tour of the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) at Saint John’s Abbey and University. Experience original folios from The Saint John’s Bible and explore rare printed books and manuscripts from the HMML collection. Join others in the MCBA community for this unique chance to engage with these incredible works up-close-and-personal, without glass cases.

Tour participants will also have the opportunity to join the Benedictine monastic community for noon prayer in the mid-century modern Abbey Church. A relaxing lunch in the Great Hall Founders Room will break up the day, and there will be some free time to explore the campus grounds.

Please note, there is a great deal of walking and stairs on the campus and guests will have to move from building to building throughout the day. Tour fee includes charter bus from MCBA to Saint John’s, private tours, lunch*, and a loaf of “Johnnie” bread baked at the University.

*Lunch includes a sandwich bar and soup.
