“The Harvard Art Museum is not the size of the Museum of Fine Arts or Gardner Museum in Boston (both of which are amazing), but has a very impressive collection, is housed in a gorgeous, recently gut-renovated building, and is large enough that you undoubtedly will be unable to see the whole thing in one visit. There is also currently (through July 28) a special exhibit called The Bauhaus and Harvard that is quite good and showcases the University’s Bauhaus collection, which is the largest in the world outside of Germany.”

“The Boston Childrens Museum is three floors of awesome. I spend hours there every week with my sons, and we still never tire of it. Not only is the museum filled with amazing things for kids, but it is also located right on the water, and right next to Tea Party Museum. Its a great place to tire out your kids and then continue exploring the history of Boston. ”

“Housed in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology museum in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is a permanent collection of wondrous and playful machines from MIT’s former artist in residence, Arthur Ganson. Some of Ganson’s wonderful machines bounce endlessly, others oil themselves, others perform mysterious tasks without explanation. Of particular interest is the sculpture in which a tiny wishbone must, Sisyphus-like, forever drag an enormous machine around behind him. Know Before You Go The main building of the MIT Museum is located at 265 Massachusetts Ave. near Central Square and the MIT Campus. There are other changing exhibits at in nearby buildings.”

History Museum
“As the memory and educational voice of USS Constitution, the USS Constitution Museum preserves, displays, and interprets artifacts and archival material related to the Ship and her crew through interactive exhibitions, compelling programs, and engaging outreach initiatives. The Museum was incorporated in 1972 as a private, non-profit and non-government funded interpretive complement to USS Constitution, an active-duty US Navy vessel and the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world. This allowed the Navy to clear Constitution’s decks of display cases so that visitors could see the Ship as a sailing vessel, rather than as a floating museum, and for artifacts to be cared for in proper environmental conditions.”

“If you have a love for American History...or if you have always wanted to throw a box of tea into a river and yell "Haa Zaa", then this is the place for you. Tour guides dressed in their best period clothing take you through the night of the famed "Boston tea Party". After taking in all the rich history make your way up to Abigail's Tea Room and have a scone and some tea. Its a great way to spend an afternoon on the Channel. ”
