Today (3/1) we visited the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, located in the heart of Boston, MA. Students enjoyed the opportunity to view a private collection of artwork assembled by a woman in 1850 - 1890. Her home, now a museum, offers a glimpse into another world art and architecture. The collection of artwork is immense and diverse.
Student blog entry #1 (Lauren T):
Today we went to the Isabelle Gardner Museum. I learned that Mrs. Gardner once lived in the home before it was converted into a museum. I particularly liked the central garden area because it was filled with lots of plants and beautiful statues.

Yesterday we went to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. There we saw many old rooms, sculptures, furniture, and paintings. All of it looked like it came out of a castle. I particularly liked the giant dining hall. What was interesting was the part where I heard that someone stole a bunch of paintings back in 1991.
