These are our top art adventures in the city.
Museum of Fine Arts
Originally founded in 1870 and with its official opening on July 4, 1876, MFA was first home to 5,600 pieces of art. Today, MFA's collection includes nearly 500,000 works of art. This is a museum you can spend hours in and still feel like you haven't seen everything. It is truly a must-visit for all ages.
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
This is a museum with an amazing story about a woman named Isabella. After inheriting $1.75 million upon her father's death, she and her husband Jack began collecting pieces of art and decided to open a museum. Today, the museum lays basically untouched, as Isabella left instructions in her will that nothing be changed and no items acquired. She leaves behinds a beautiful museum "for the education and enjoyment of the public forever."
