Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
A $15.00 value - Included with your Go Boston Card!
The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum—a work of art in totality—is at once an intimate collection of fine and decorative art and a vibrant, innovative venue for contemporary artists, musicians, and scholars. Housed in a 1902 building, modeled after a 15th century Venetian palazzo, and a 2012 wing designed by Renzo Piano, the Museum provides an unusual backdrop for the viewing of art. The historic galleries surrounding the verdant Courtyard contain more than 2,500 extraordinary works of art, featuring pieces by Titian, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, Manet, Degas, Whistler, and Sargent.
Several spaces in the new Renzo Piano-designed wing were created to encourage visitor engagement and orientation, and special artist projects in these areas will promote an atmosphere of curiosity and learning.
MUSIC AT THE GARDNER
The Gardner Museum hosts performances by world-renowned musicians and for generations, has served as a launch pad for outstanding emerging artists. Now housed in the innovative Calderwood Hall, concerts feature classical masterpieces, contemporary music, and jazz. See gardnermuseum.org/music for the concert schedule.
