Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Nominated for: BEST Museum

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum 25 Evans Way Boston MA (617) 566-1401

Isabella Stewart Gardner first welcomed visitors to her museum on New Year's Day, 1903. On that evening guests listened to the music of Bach, Mozart, and Schumann, gazed in wonder at the courtyard full of flowers, and viewed one of the nation's finest collections of art. Today, visitors experience much the same thing. The Gardner Museum has remained essentially unchanged since its founder's death in 1924. Unchanged but certainly not stagnant.

What I love about the Gardner Museum is experiencing art the same was it was experienced in her home 100+ years ago.

The Gardner is a hidden gem. If you've not visited yet, you must make a point to go. While not the biggest museum in the area, it is very unique. Learning about Isabella Stewart Gardner is just as fascinating as looking at her collection.
