  • Museum of Science
    Five Things to Know About Museum of Science The Museum of Science dates all the way back to 1830, when a group of civic-minded scientists and academics formed the Boston Society of Natural History. The group didn’t have a permanent spot for its collections until 1864, and it didn’t move into its current spot by the Charles River until 1951. After 180 years, the museum still isn’t standing still; it’s just finished a capital campaign to help inspire a love of science and technology in future generations. Before you stop by, here are a few helpful tidbits about the museum. There’s plenty for little ones to do. Designed for kids 8 or younger, The Discovery Center offers hands-on science experiments, real fossils and animal skeletons, and much more. T. rex fans will love the Dinosaurs: Modeling the Mesozoic exhibit, which features plenty of imagination-inspiring models and fossils. To infinity and beyond? Why not? Past exhibits include The Science Behind Pixar, which showed the technology and science that go into creating films such as Toy Story and Finding Nemo over more than 40 exhibit elements. There are presentations all day. Check out a demonstration of lightning created by a very large Van de Graaff generator, see a show about scientific magic, or watch two brothers discuss physics while performing entertaining feats in The Amazing Nano Brothers Juggling Show. IMAX in the house: With a gargantuan screen measuring more than five stories in height, the IMAX theatre gives you an immersive view of the world; popular shows let audiences explore Arabian lands or visit the worlds of dinosaurs or humpback whales. Math controversy abounded in 2015 when a teen saw what he believed to be a math error in a museum exhibit. At first, the museum acknowledged its error, but upon further review, it emerged that the museum’s original equation was correct (albeit presented in a less common format).

  • John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum
    Five Things to Know About John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum Like several presidents before him (and all after), John F. Kennedy agreed to house his presidential papers in a publicly accessible library after his presidency. Because of his assassination in November 1963, however, the task was left to others to determine how best to represent his legacy. After lengthy delays, the library and museum finally opened in 1979, covering his life and presidency in great detail. Here are a few things to know before you visit: The building is designed by I.M. Pei. The legendary architect was chosen by Jacqueline Kennedy herself. It leaves no stone left unturned. Permanent exhibits cover JFK on the campaign trail, in TV press conferences, and in the space race. They also profile Jacqueline Kennedy and the rest of his family. Rotating exhibits have covered aspects of his life and work in more detail, such as the Cuban missile crisis and a comic book issue in which the president asks Superman to help the nation live healthier lives. If your grandma once sent a gift to JFK, it might be here. The museum has collected 20,000 objects, including many gifts from heads of state and regular citizens, such as a chair crafted by a Cub Scout and a rosary carved out of pinewood. There’s a large collection of Ernest Hemingway papers. Kennedy was an admirer of Hemingway, and the widow of the latter donated the bulk of his papers to the library in the 1970s. Kennedy’s sailboat, the Victura, is on display during warmer weather. It’s there to remind visitors of the family’s love of being out on the water.

  • Johnson Artist Materials
    Five Things To Know About Johnson Paint Co. John A. Johnson opened Johnson Paint Co. in 1939, establishing a reputation for stocking hard-to-find items, such as Dutch kalsomine and powdered pigments. Now in its third generation of family ownership, Johnson Paint Co. stands as a well-rounded institution with an impressive clientele that includes many of the city’s hotels, universities, and high-rise office buildings. Here are a few more facts about this Boston-based institution: There are now three locations. In addition to the original shop on Newbury St., Johnson Paint has spots in Woburn and Waltham. Some staff members have been on board for nearly 40 years. All that wisdom and experience comes in handy, especially when helping clients find just the right colors for their projects during in-house consultations. The company has different specialties. These include faux finishing products and decorative painting techniques, including the funky “broken color” approach. Expansion led the company into the large commercial painting market. The Woburn location is especially well-versed in that arena, catering to contractors, building maintenance accounts, and retail customers. They carry art supplies, too. In addition to big-project materials, Johnson Paint stocks artist supplies from some of the industry’s top brands, including Golden, Williamsburg, and Winsor & Newton.

  • Boston Duck Tours
    Five Things to Know About Boston Duck Tours One of the best parts about taking a Boston Duck Tour is the cheesiness. Passengers are encouraged to quack as they board these bus-boat hybrids that navigate both the city streets and the Charles River. But despite the frivolity, guests still get a good overview of the city and learn about the history that seems to permeate every block. Read on to learn more about what makes the tours so interesting: The ducks are based on WWII vehicles. These amphibious vehicles were used during the war to transport troops over both land and water. Tourgoers see more than 30 landmarks. Depending on the route, sightseers may spot the USS Constitution, Beacon Hill, and the bar where exterior scenes for Cheers were shot. The tour guides all have flamboyant personalities. Called "conDUCKtors," the guides go by punny names such as "The Codfather" and "Amelia Airhead." ConDUCKtors know how to quack in 10 languages. Tours are led in English, but an audio program can impart info in nine other languages, including Spanish, German, and Mandarin. The tour includes discounts at spots all around Boston. Just show your ticket to save money at the Museum of Science, the New England Aquarium, and all sorts of stores and restaurants.
