  • Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
    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.

  • Museum of Science
    One word best describes the Museum of Science: interactive. Hundreds of attractions invite you to get involved, from live science presentations to the Butterfly Garden—a tropical oasis where butterflies flutter freely and caterpillars transform before your eyes. There’s also a 4D theater that combines 3D visuals with in-theater special effects such as wind and snow.

  • The Mapparium
    It’s not often you can stand inside a giant globe—certainly not one that’s made entirely of stained glass. But that’s exactly what The Mapparium is. Back-lit by specially designed LED panels, the map drawn on the walls of the three-story spherical room changes to not only create a unique spectacle but to illustrate the flow of ideas.
