“One of the most highly regarded museums in the world, the massive Museum of Fine Arts boasts about half a million objects spanning the centuries from ancient Egypt to present-day artwork. The museum officially opened its doors in 1876, with a little over 5,500 objects. What a difference a century-plus makes! It’s best to make a game plan of what you want to see because tackling the museum in a few hours, or even a day, is impossible. Highlights include more than 70 works by John Singleton Copley and major paintings by Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent and Edward Hopper. Paintings aren’t your thing? African masks, Native American pottery, mummies, musical instruments, and practically any other media you can think of have a home at the museum. Daily free one-hour guided tours give a good overview.”
“Great aquarium - medium sized, often very busy but well laid out and worth a visit. Tip - pay for your ticket online/on your phone before you go and skip the line!”
“Visitors can be forgiven for thinking that Faneuil Hall Marketplace is Faneuil Hall, but it’s not; the marketplace is a complex of buildings which include Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, North Market and South Market, all situated around a cobblestone promenade. Restaurants, shops, and buskers make it a lively scene. Faneuil Hall was built in 1742 as a public meeting space and market. The original building burned down in 1761 and was immediately rebuilt. Over the years, many significant speeches took place there, from colonists protesting the Sugar Act in 1764 to George Washington toasting the nation on its first birthday. To this day, Massachusetts politicians hold speeches here. Inside, park rangers offer tours and advice, visitors can check out dozens of paintings of famous Americans, and there are interactive displays about Boston sights.”
“One of the city’s most charming attractions is the small but lovely Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Isabella Stewart, a New York socialite, came to Boston in 1860 to marry John Lowell Gardner, one of Boston’s prominent citizens. In short order, Isabella set to building herself a Venetian palazzo to hold her extensive art collection. Just like she was, the collection is eclectic, with masterpieces by Titian (Europa), Giotto (Presentation of Christ in the Temple) and John Singer Sargent (El Jaleo), to name a few. Isabella left strict instructions in her will that the building remain exactly as she left it, so visitors today can almost picture her enjoying the gorgeous gardens in her Venetian courtyard or warming her hands by one of the Renaissance hooded fireplaces.”
