Somerville : sites touristiques et attractions

Musées d'art

Musée d'art
“The Harvard Art Museum is not the size of the Museum of Fine Arts or Gardner Museum in Boston (both of which are amazing), but has a very impressive collection, is housed in a gorgeous, recently gut-renovated building, and is large enough that you undoubtedly will be unable to see the whole thing in one visit. There is also currently (through July 28) a special exhibit called The Bauhaus and Harvard that is quite good and showcases the University’s Bauhaus collection, which is the largest in the world outside of Germany.”

“Take time to enjoy the displays of this amazing institution - the Glass Flowers, the mineral room, the preserved animals from every continent, artifacts from indigenous peoples, so many things are housed here. It's a large museum, with a small, often old-fashioned feel. It is a gem of a museum. ”
