Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum – This museum comes with a past. Isabella from New York City married her husband right before her twentieth birthday and later lost her two years of son after the two had settled into the Back Bay. Trying to fix her depression she went traveling with her husband and kept journals on everywhere that she had been. Later she developed a love for art and after her husband had passed she had continued with the plans that the two had to open the museum. Isabella had an extensive art collection that remains to this day. This museum is a must-see not only because of the passion and love that went into making it but the art collections are extremely rare.
