  • One of the city's best art museums. Very modern with a great selection of art.
  • Surprisingly good, has very nice collection. However, one of the guards there was so rude and yelled at us don't touch the glass which we didn't touch at all. Then she stared at us and tried to see if she can catch any other chances. Also, the admission tags are so easy to lose on clothing. Need to improve their management.
  • World class collection in Cambridge's oldest little schoolhouse down the road. The new building housing the collection is remarkable in and of itself. There are usually events and tours going on, so be sure to check out the website.
  • Did you know BU students get in to Harvard Art Museums for free? Well they do! This is a great set of museums all packed into basically one building, with many religious pieces and a fantastic array of Persian and Japanese art. A great way to spend a couple hours if you are somehow bored in Cambridge.
  • I was surprised at the quality and quantity of art here. Beautiful art that includes Picasso, Renoir, Miro, Etc... The museum is free if you live in Cambridge - don't forget to bring proof of residency. It's also free on Saturdays from 10am-noon for Massachusetts residents. Highly recommended. It's a short walk from the T.
