Kennedy Museum, the Salem Witch Museum, the Museum of Science, and the Boston Children’s Museum. Find out why each one is worth the trip to Boston!
As an educational and cultural hub, Boston and its surrounding neighborhoods are home to some of the best art, history and science museums in the world. Some of the best, biggest and most unique museums include the Museum of Fine Arts in Copley Square. The MFA is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive art collections in the world, which includes almost 450,000 works of art and one of the world’s largest Asian collections. Also, don’t miss the mummies at the MFA! For modern, interactive, cutting-edge art, visit the Institute of Contemporary Art, which is in an impressive modern building right on the waterfront.
And for a glimpse of art history in a unique setting check out the beautiful Isabella Gardner Museum which is housed in a 15th century Venetian-style palace complete with an inside courtyard garden. The collection includes work by Degas, Boticelli and Michelangelo and the museum was the location of one of the biggest art world coups — a heist in 1990 where priceless Rembrandts and Vermeers were stolen! History buffs won’t want to miss the John F. Kennedy Museum, the U.S.S. Constitution Museum or the Salem Witch Museum which walks visitors through the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. If you’re traveling with kids, and even if you’re not, the Museum of Science and the Boston Children’s Museum are great spots to visit. The Children’s Museum always offers fun educational activities for kids to really get their hands dirty with, and the Museum of Science is the most visited attraction in Boston for good reason — it’s home to fantastic animal exhibits, the first space capsule, a Planetarium and a Butterfly Hall.
