In this area is the Museum of Fine Arts, a huge museum famous for its worldwide art collection, and historic Fenway Park, a baseball stadium more than 100 years old and filled with baseball lore and the curse of the Bambino.

Museum of Fine Arts - The Museum of Fine Arts is a “biggie,” so start your visit early in the day. Arts of Europe galleries have paintings by Renoir, Van Gogh, Monet, plus Degas’ bronze sculpture of a ballet dancer. .
Choose a culture to explore in different galleries – Egyptian, Roman, Greek, arts of Africa, Asia, and Oceania. And don’t miss paintings by 18th century American artists with portraits of George Washington, Sam Adams, John Hancock, Paul Revere.
Tip: With your ticket, you can go in and out during the day (visit the museum in the morning, leave at lunchtime,run around, then return in the afternoon). Also, if you have time, ticket is good for a second visit (within ten days).
Admission to Museum of Fine Arts is included in the Go BostonCard.
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum - A visit to the Gardner Museum is to step inside Mrs. Gardners's home, a Venetian-style palazzo filled with art works. The ground-floor courtyard with fountains and tropical plants is especially welcome in winter. Upstairs, there are tapestries of lords and ladies, French stained glass windows, an exquisite Christ Child in the Temple by Giotto, and Self-Portrait by Rembrandt.
It's a unique museum environment, but the Gardener isn't a comfortable museum for small children, and even with older kids you'll want to find out in advance what to see, as none of the artworks are labeled. Click here for a guide to the galleries.
Back Bay Fens - Between the museums and Fenway Park is a rather run down park area with a muddy lagoon, marshy plants, grass covered with bird poop, and pushy geese. We'd give it a miss in the daytime, and after dark it's certainly to be avoided.
Fenway Park - Everyone in the family will enjoy a baseball game at Fenway Park, an old-fashioned stadium and home of the Red Sox. Babe Ruth pitched winning games for the Red Sox at Fenway Park, but between 1816 and 2004, the Red Sox didn't win a World Series. The stadium has many quirky features, including a high green wall (with a manual scoreboard) that often obstructs home runs. Kids can wear their own Red Sox shirts to get into the spirit of the game.
