  • What a wonderful morning. Started with parking just across which made it so easy . The glass wall overlooking the sea is so magnificent, it was hard to walk away. I found the coffee Lange outside give...  read more »
  • I was really looking forward to this and so disappointed. I'm hoping this is a work in progress and we just visited too early in the launch of it. 
  • Visit the exhibition in the Museum moved 10 anniversary. It is more fun to watch while watching this will be loaned free of charge audio guides are nice and only works with. It was the building itself is lovely, somewhat sober impression is compatible, but often historical references of Boston is a good diversion.

  • Although the museum as a whole is quite small (only one floor in the whole building), the choice of exhibitions in very nice. It was about time they brought change in the permanent exposition. The gift shop always has wonderful designer objects that make for great gifts. Overall, the ICA is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Boston.
  • The architecture of the building is cool. Best part inside is the view of Boston, though. I'm not a huge fan of modern art, so I personally did not really like the exhibits. It was a slightly difficult to find due to all of the construction going on. It is a good price if you want something to do and not too huge of an exhibit to get through.
  • Overpriced and underwhelming--paid hefty admission fee but could not see much as the permanent collection was not on view. Apparently "we're setting up for a show" is supposed to be adequate warning that nothing will be on view until August 17. No refunds--partial or otherwise--were offered when we expressed our disappointment. Just a lot of attitude.
  • Great spot, cool museum, has space for lecturers and events downstairs too. The event we attended had a bar setup downstairs with a Lan party raging.
  • Awesome contemporary art at a great location. I love watching Boston Harbor from above inside the museum after checking out what is usually a good great selection of modern artwork. They are great at hosting events as well.
