“Visitors can be forgiven for thinking that Faneuil Hall Marketplace is Faneuil Hall, but it’s not; the marketplace is a complex of buildings which include Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, North Market and South Market, all situated around a cobblestone promenade. Restaurants, shops, and buskers make it a lively scene. Faneuil Hall was built in 1742 as a public meeting space and market. The original building burned down in 1761 and was immediately rebuilt. Over the years, many significant speeches took place there, from colonists protesting the Sugar Act in 1764 to George Washington toasting the nation on its first birthday. To this day, Massachusetts politicians hold speeches here. Inside, park rangers offer tours and advice, visitors can check out dozens of paintings of famous Americans, and there are interactive displays about Boston sights.”

“Along with the cutting-edge art inside its walls, the museum’s building itself can be considered a work of art in its own right. The gorgeous glass-walled cantilevered building sits right on the edge of the Boston waterfront, offering breathtaking views both inside and out. Since its inception in 1936, the ICA has been instrumental in identifying or showcasing the most important artists of the day, such as Edvard Munch, Andy Warhol, Laurie Anderson, and Roy Lichtenstein. Works by artists like Bill Viola, Kara Walker, Cindy Sherman, Shepard Fairey, and Rashaun Mitchell have been on view more recently. The museum offers a roster of changing exhibitions, live music and dance performances, film and digital media selections, talks, tours, family activities and teen programming.”

“One of the most highly regarded museums in the world, the massive Museum of Fine Arts boasts about half a million objects spanning the centuries from ancient Egypt to present-day artwork. The museum officially opened its doors in 1876, with a little over 5,500 objects. What a difference a century-plus makes! It’s best to make a game plan of what you want to see because tackling the museum in a few hours, or even a day, is impossible. Highlights include more than 70 works by John Singleton Copley and major paintings by Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent and Edward Hopper. Paintings aren’t your thing? African masks, Native American pottery, mummies, musical instruments, and practically any other media you can think of have a home at the museum. Daily free one-hour guided tours give a good overview.”
