  • Complimentary coffee in the ICA Water Cafe for Go Boston Card customers

The ICA brings the most significant national and international contemporary art to Boston. The building itself, a visionary weaving together of interior and exterior space, is a huge draw. Take in the art then take a stroll along the revitalized waterfront.

The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) has been at the leading edge of art in Boston for seventy years, offering new ways of engaging with the world around us through visual interaction and artistic dialogue. Its exhibitions and programs provide access to contemporary art, artists, and the creative process, inviting audiences of all ages and backgrounds to participate in the excitement of new art and contemporary ideas.

Comments about Smart Destinations Institute of Contemporary Art:

We enjoyed our free coffee in the cafe. As with all of the attractions, the GoCard was accepted enthusiastically! Also, parked at a meter on Seaport Blvd for free (a Sunday visit) and had a beautiful walk from the ICA to the Aquarium.

Public Transportation

Take the T: Silver Line to Courthouse stop. Exit the station onto Seaport Boulevard and follow it, walking away from downtown. Just before the first traffic light, there will be a pedestrian opening in the fence on your left—walk through it to the walkway that runs alongside the Chapel of Our Lady of Good Voyage. This will lead you to Northern Avenue. The ICA is across the street.
