Harvard Art Museums
Discover the rich collections of the Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and Arthur M. Sackler Museums, united in a new facility designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop.
So many museums in the Boston area. This gem is Harvard’s oldest, recently renovated is a beautiful building onto itself. It has a bit of everything.
Reach it via the 69 bus or take the red line from Kendall to Harvard Square.
Harvard recently rebuilt this museum and it really is impressive. Great place to visit while in Harvard Square.
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…
“Wonderful intimate museum with a hand-pulled glass botany exhibit that will blow your mind, minerals exhibited in beautiful wood and glass display cases, a variety of dinosaur, bird and animal exhibits. ”
“Great, quick sandwiches and breakfast sandwiches and very good coffee, as well delicious baked goods. This is a popular meeting and working spot. ”
“Casual restaurant and bar that usually has a table open or a short wait (tough to find around here!) The food is good and relatively inexpensive, and they serve food until 1am! An 8 minute walk from us.”
