I love art. I could spend the entire day at this museum and want to come back the following day. I confess I am drawn to the big tickets items in the Maurice Wertheim Collection.
A lot of people would rank this #1. Two words: Glass Flowers. The collection is stunning!
This museum may be smaller in size, but its a wonderful combination of art and science. Cambridge Library card holders get in free in July & August.
Technically part of the Harvard Museum of Natural History, but it holds its own.
You may think this is misplaced on a Cambridge list. Little known fact: a large part of the museum is in Cambridge.
