Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, built to evoke a 15th-century Venetian palace, displays more than 2,500 objects—paintings, sculpture, furniture, textiles, drawings, silver, ceramics, illuminated manuscripts, rare books, photographs and letters—from ancient Rome, Medieval Europe, Renaissance Italy, Asia, the Islamic world and 19th-century France and America. On a guided tour, groups will receive a general introduction to Isabella Gardner and the Museum's history from a museum educator, and discuss approximately five works of art in the museum’s major galleries. Guided and self-guided groups must register at least four weeks in advance.
