The lighting is dim, some of the art is difficult to see.

I'm from NY so have been spoiled by impressive musuems. I was quite pleased with my visit to the ISG Museum. Beautiful collection and the courtyard! Oh I could enjoy that space for hours. Had a lovely lunch in the cafe. Was happily surprised when another patron was serenaded for her birthday with an operatic version of happy birthday.

Plan enough time! We had planned to spend 2 hours, but could have doubled that. What a great non-traditional museum Bette

The museum is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon. The courtyard is beautiful. The artwork takes your breath away. It is amazing that someone could amass such pieces.

Be sure to check your coat or jacket - free service, and makes enjoying every thing so much easier. Small galleries - in rooms off the first floor are very interesting - don't miss them. Really LOVELY museum. Worth the trip and definitely a "hidden gem" in Boston.

I understand they need to protect the art from the light, but there was a lot of artwork I couldn't see well because it was too dark. Loved the courtyard.

From Our Editors

The 15th-century style Venetian palazzo known as the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is most famous for its historic art and contemporary collection – or infamous, perhaps, for its 1990 heist – but there are many beautiful sculptures, manuscripts and pieces of furniture that are also on display. Named after an American woman who loved the arts, the museum added a new wing in 2012 behind the main building that hosts live musical performances, prominent exhibits, concerts at Calderwood Hall and even two artists-in-resident apartments. The indoor courtyard, which has a spectacular year-round garden of flowering jade trees, summer blues hydrangeas and midwinter tropics flowers, is made even more beautiful when decorated for the holidays.

Boston Restaurant Guide

Boston may be known for its seafood, but it also has a lot more to offer to anyone willing to venture outside of their own neighborhood for a meal. The exciting cultural variety in the city is put on display in many ethnic Boston restaurants. With the diversity of cuisine available, it is possible to travel the world by plate without ever leaving the city.

Pasta E. Pomodoro in Boston's North End offers authentic Italian dishes that cannot be found on the menus of more commercialized Italian joints. An example is Pollo Ripienoa, which is a breaded chicken breast scattered with mushrooms, asiago cheese and prosciutto and served with garlic mashed potatoes and a shiitake Marsala wine sauce. Pomodoro also serves a variety of appetizers and desserts to complete any hearty Italian meal.

Get a taste of the Mediterranean while dining in Boston with a meal at Oleana Restaurant. Located in the Inman Square neighborhood, Oleana is known for its Turkish fare. For appetizers, order the chickpea crepe with a cinnamon aioli, a speciality of the house. For entrees, the restaurant is best known for its lamb steak cooked in Turkish spices and served with a fava bean moussaka. Make sure to save room for dessert and end the meal with one of Oleana's specialty ice creams. The cocoa-rose ice cream served with date-rose truffles is a very popular choice.

A guide to dining in Boston is never complete without a seafood restaurant on the list. End the experience with cuisines from around the world with a meal at the famous Neptune Oyster in the North End. Choose from classics like New England Clam chowder or try something more unique to the area like steamed Wellfleet Littleneck clams in a sauce of wine and garlic. The Neptune Oyster is also well known for its raw bar that is always stocked with fresh shellfish and stays open well past the dinner hour.

True Boston food is a multi-ethnic blend of cuisines that locals can sample from each night. When considering what to have for dinner, be adventurous and try some of the more unusual dining options that Boston restaurants located throughout the city have to offer.
