7 Best Art Galleries You Should See in Boston

When you come to Boston, you're coming to a young city. Well, you can call it young in terms of the population - there are so many college students there. It's a bustling place with a lot of people - just watch out for the drivers. Before you go out and look around the city, you might want to store your luggage, especially if your hotel room isn't ready.

Vertoe is one of the best options for luggage storage in Boston. Once you have the luggage taken care of, you can then walk around the city or jump on the T for a ride without anything cumbersome.

There are a lot of choices to pick from - you can catch the Sox at Fenway Park ("The Sawx at Fenway Pahk") or walk along Newbury Street.

There are also a lot of art galleries too. Here are seven of the best ones:

1. Museum of Fine Arts
This is an easy trip for you on the "E" Green Line T. It's on Huntington Avenue, the same as Northeastern University. The museum has so many different types of art that it could be easy to spend your whole trip here. Whether you're a history buff or like to see more modern work, this is the place for art lovers.

2. Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
This is an artistic jewel on so many different levels. The outside has so many different horticultural displays along with all the art that is inside. You can find everything from original Dante manuscripts to works from all over the world. It's nestled in the Fenway-Kenmore area and it's a great place to while away a whole day and see so many different types of art.

3. Robert Klein Gallery
This gallery, which opened in 1980, shows the best fine art photography from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Annie Liebowitz, Diane Arbus, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Sally Mann have had their photos displayed there. You will love how cozy and intimate this place is - it's on the fourth floor of its building, and it has continued to be big in the photography world.

4. SoWa Artists Guild
No, this isn't a Boston accent at work. This guild is part of the SoWa Art + Design District, where there are both galleries and artist studios. The Guild itself is a non-profit organization and there are artists from all over the world who show off their work in the main space. You can see all kinds of artwork from all kinds of artistic mediums.

5. The Institute of Contemporary Art
Here is a place that you can find as you walk along Boston Harbor. It has a very large exhibit that they change every several months and then several smaller ones. They usually base these around one particular artist or a theme that winds throughout all the works that are there.

6. Vose Gallery
This gallery is set up in a brownstone on Newbury Street, which is a popular tourist spot. There are many stores and restaurants to try out. If you come here, you can find American realist paintings from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.

7. Galerie d'Orsay
This gallery opened back in 2000, which to some does not seem that long ago. You can find it in the Back Bay and you can see works by Rembrandt, Dali, and Toulouse-Lautrec, among others. They also display artists who are still alive - it's not all art history. This is not just a tourist destination, though. Native Bostonians love coming here, too.

This is just a small sample of the art that you can see when you visit Boston. Other ones that didn't quite make the list include Gallery NAGA and Krakow Witkin Gallery.
It all depends on how much time you are spending in Boston. It's a very walkable city, though, so you can do a lot more than you might in a larger place. Enjoy your time there!
