  • Museum of Fine Arts


    Art Museum

    Check out the new Art of the Americas wing, an airy atrium that connects the historic main building to the natural landscape of the Fens beyond.

  • Gropius House


    Historic Site

    Technically an hour outside Boston (and only open certain days and hours), this is a national historic landmark built by Walter Gropius in 1938.

  • MIT Stata Center (Building 32)



    Designed by Frank Gehry, this wild, undulating building is a highlight of the MIT campus.

  • MIT Chapel (Building W15)



    The interior of this chapel, designed by Eero Saarinen, is spectacularly minimal. Wood, brick and a hanging installation create a contemplative space.

  • Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts



    Le Corbusier's only building ever to be realized in North America, this concrete beauty is the home of Harvard's art center.

  • Lekker Home


    Furniture / Home

    A relaxed, casual vibe permeates the minimal yet colorful designs of the objects and furniture in this store.

  • Hudson


    Furniture / Home

    California cool meets New England preppy, this pretty store feels like a chic movie set. With an unlimited budget I would buy this whole store.

  • Mint Julep



    A very cute shop full of colorful fashion and accessories. Slightly pricey but good quality items.

  • Bob's Your Uncle


    Art Gallery

    The couple that runs this shop is super friendly, with an eye for well designed, colorful products. Stationery, home goods, and more to be found here.

  • Harvard Book Store



    Great staff recommendations in this beautiful, historic store. Check out their basement for a crazy extensive selection of used art books in great condition.

  • Black Ink


    Gift Shop

    Black Ink is like kryptonite for my wallet. I want to buy everything in here from games to posters to toys to housewares. Trust me, this place is AWESOME.

  • Institute of Contemporary Art


    Art Museum

    An impressive collection housed in a spectacular modern building right on the Boston harbor. Their gift shop is to die for, so don't miss it.
