Education is one of Boston's strong suits, but it doesn't always come in the form of academia. Museums are one of the best way to soak in Boston's culture and the arts, science and history surrounding it.
One of the coolest museums in Boston is the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. The story goes that Isabella and her husband were married in extreme wealth, and in their year-long honeymoon, and many international trips afterward, they collected not only artwork, but pieces of buildings, materials and textiles to bring along with them. With nowhere else to store their hundreds of artifacts, they bought a new place, strictly to hold them.
When her husband died, Isabella moved in the top floor of this art house, and wrote in her will that not one piece of art could be moved for the rest of the building's history.
