Since 1903, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum has been a special place to admire art and enjoy music. The gardens are a peaceful place to escape the hustle and bustle. In 1990, the museum was the site of the largest property theft in the world when 13 works of art were stolen. A $10 million reward is still being offered for information leading to their recovery.
Advance tickets and masks are required. You can also virtually explore the museum at no cost.
When it opened in 1870, the Museum of Fine Arts had 5,600 works of art. Today, you'll find over 500,000 pieces in the collection.

If you become a member, you can visit for free for a year. You can also browse exhibits online for free through their Google Arts & Culture site.
You learned about the Boston Tea Party in history class, but you can actually tour a replica of a ship and see the only surviving chest that carried tea.

Of course, you can't leave without ordering tea and pastries at Abigail's Tea Room and Terrace.
