Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • So much history and art collected by one woman. Her house is beautiful and the gardens are peaceful. The art is from all over the world. You will feel like you have traveled the globe after you have walked all three floors. If you love history and art make sure you give yourself a lot of time there is a lot to see for such a small space. Easily a three hour or more visit. There are a gift shop and a cafe. If you are on the go there are free lockers for backpack storage.

  • A definite must do if you are visiting. Definitely World class and exquisite exhibitions, with eclectic collection of fine art and sculptures with intriguing history. A place suitable for all ages. There's a restaurant inside the place and street parking or public parking complex nearby. Wheelchair accessible entrance and public lavatory. This is a beautiful gem of a stupendous museum. I would definitely come back here next time I'm in America.

  • A beautiful museum showcasing an astonishing woman’s vision and a glimpse into her soul. I had originally wanted to come to see the famous courtyard, but there was so much more to this museum. I love the feminine and feminist overtures, each room flowed beautifully into the next and you can feel her presence throughout the museum. It truly is her own work of art. Upon arrival there is a complimentary coat check and there are lockers provided for bags. We had luggage as we were on our way out of Boston but didn’t want to miss this museum, and they kindly stowed our bags for us. The entrance is a modern addition and very minimal yet aesthetic. I would recommend catching a tour, our tour guide was an absolute delight and only took 30 minutes, after which we were even more eager to explore. There is also a free online audio tour or $5 to rent a device. I would budget 1.5-3 hours depending on how interested you would be in each room and examining each piece of art. There are a lot, all eclectically spread out exactly as Isabella wanted. The crowds are pleasant, with art students sprawled throughout the museum gathering inspiration. Staff is kind and friendly. Such a great experience.

  • If visiting Boston don't miss this amazing home turned into a museum. You can go through it quickly but don't. Give yourself time, the longer the better! There is so much to see. An amazing woman who spent her life travelling and picking up items of beauty and historical interest. Pit together like she wanted it. Cruise through each room taking in every item. Each room has 4 plasticised sheets with descriptions of what is on and against each wall of the room. Pick them up before looking around so you don't miss anything. You will see paintings by Rembrandt, Matisse, Titian and others, letters by politicians, actors and others. Items (even stained glass church windows) from Italy, France, Belgium, Asia. So much art and history in just one house! Read about her story before going or take the half hour free tour included in the ticket price.

  • Unlike a typical museum, nothing is labeled or truly organized and I didn't read enough reviews before arriving to figure this out. We later learned from a guest there is an excellent audio tour available through the website, but it was too late. Otherwise, you need to rent headphones and a guided audio tour when you get there. The museum is small and dark, and would have been much more enjoyable had we been prepared. On a positive note, we found the staff friendly and accommodating to our family that included a baby in a stroller.
