One of those "OMG THAT painting is here, museums!!!" Beautifully designed and crafted with an excellent collection of art both paintings and sculpture plus a fine collection of African and Egyptian art.
As an art photographer, the Harvard Art Museums provide an outstanding place to view and photograph fine works of European and American art.

The Harvard Museum of Natural History may be smaller than most major metropolitan natural history museums, but it has an amazing collection that easily rivals larger facilities.
... Peabody Museum had a terrific special display featuring Chicago world’s fair of 1893 (aka World’s Columbian Exposition) Located on campus in Cambridge, these museums are well worth a few hours (or more).

I relived the thrill & surprise of entering the museums courtyard through my friend's eyes & was proud to call Boston home where we have such diverse & meticulously maintained treasures.
... even now, thanks to curatorial wisdom) and the Frick, this museum is intensely personal and, as a result, in some ways more interesting than the "big box" art museums that can be overwhelming with size and scope.

They've got a pretty large variety of things in the museums, and if you're in the area with a few hours to spare, definitely check it out!
The museum is an excellent way to form a complete and compact idea about modern art, or enrich an already profound knowledge through additional exceptional pieces of art, well presented thematically and well exposed.

There are museums dedicated to war, politics, art, sports, finance and even sex; a medical museum is befitting to human kind and medical professionals.
The museum is a great spot to learn about medical history in general and medical innovations pioneered at MGH.
