If you are visiting Boston with kids whose incessant curiosity regarding nature and world puzzles you, do not miss to add Museum of Science in your things-to-do in Boston. The museum has a science museum and an indoor zoo. Exhibits are organized in three wings: Blue Wing, Green Wing, Red Wing and Miscellaneous.  The museum has exhibits from all the disciplines of science and nature. From the world’s largest open-air Van de Graaff generator to Dinosaurs: Modeling the Mesozoic, Colossal Fossil, A Bird’s World, and beyond – there are many notable exhibits for visitors to see and experience. A walk-through Butterfly Garden featuring exotic butterflies takes you into a different world. Seeing is Deceiving? Sounds contrasting the age-old idiom. But a collection of optical illusions, including many motorized illusions prove it right.

The Paul Revere House, built c.1680, was the colonial home of American patriot Paul Revere during the American Revolution. The US Govt. declared it a National Historic Landmark in 1961. The building is now a nonprofit museum managed by Paul Revere Memorial Association. Highlights of Paul Revere House: It’s a three-story house constructed using timber. The main block of the house consisted of four structural bays demarcated by heavy framing posts and overhead beams. The larger ground-floor room in this main block was dominated by its chimney bay and adjoining lobby entrance. It underwent renovation many a time, however, it’s ninety percent of the structure (including two doors, three window frames, and portions of the flooring, foundation, inner wall material and raftering) is original to 1680.

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts, is the fifth largest museum in the United States. The museum features around 450, 000 works of art derived from global civilizations including ancient Greece, Rome, Africa, Americans, Europe, Asia and Oceania. Highlighted exhibits include Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Bocca Baciata (1859), Mary Cassatt, Tea (1880), John Singleton Copley, Watson and the Shark (1778), and more.

The museum has a busy calendar when it comes to art events. If you are a feminist, take the rare opportunity to be part of “Women Take the Floor (Her Vision, her voice across a century of art)” September 13, 2019-May 3, 2021. “Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation” is an upcoming art event that is scheduled by April 5–August 2, 2020. The event is themed around neo-expressionism, freestyle sampling, and wildstyle lettering.

You can become a subscriber to its official MFA.org site to receive updates on upcoming exhibitions, programs or special events.
