Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

280 The Fenway
Boston , MA , United States http://www.gardnermuseum.org/
(617) 278-5156

This eclectic museum occupies a meticulous replica of a Venetian palazzo and showcases an unparalleled collection of old masters, Gothic tapestries, and Renaissance furniture. Until 1924, the three-story manse—centered on an interior courtyard filled with ancient Greek statuary and blooming delphinium and Cape primrose—was also the home of its namesake, a mining heiress with an extraordinary eye for art.

Tip: On Sundays the museum hosts live performances by its own chamber-music ensemble; there’s also jazz on some Thursday nights (call ahead).

Admission: $12 adults, $10 seniors, free for children under 18; all named "Isabella" admitted free forever. Closed Monday.
