We visited Harvard's Museum of Natural History to see the world famous Glass Flowers, then we strolled and hung out in Harvard Square.
Isabella Stewart Gardner collected and carefully displayed a collection of more than 2,500 objects --many that rank among the most significant of their type—paintings, sculpture, furniture, textiles, drawings, silver, ceramics, illuminated manuscripts, rare books, photographs and letters—from ancient Rome, Medieval Europe, Renaissance Italy, Asia, the Islamic world and 19th-century France and America.
The Museum itself evokes a 15th-century Venetian palace. Seen here the courtyard, paintings by Sargent, Rubens, and Botticelli and the Dutch Room.
Boston after dark, luxury shops and galleries on Newbury Street.
