Boston’s mix of history, modernism, academics and sports means that the city has a plethora of museums that fit a variety of interests. Visitors can view collections of fine art from around the world, learn about science while watching a lightning show or take in beautiful harbor views while looking at contemporary art, to list a few. Indeed, the city has over 60 museums within its limits – but here are 12 to get you started.
If you want more of JFK, you can view the house in which the beloved president grew up over in Brookline. About six years after John F Kennedy was assassinated, his mother, Rose Kennedy, gifted his childhood home to the National Park Service. There you can learn about his early life and the values that shaped his principles. The house is open to visitors seasonally, May through October. Visitors can choose to take a tour of the house, the surrounding Brookline area or Boston’s North End where his mother and family came from.
