Boston Culture Overview

The Institute Of Contemporary Art - Museum in Boston

Long considered to be one of the most well-educated cities in the country, Boston's academic prowess abounds. Those in search of Boston culture must only look to the fact that the area is so rich in resources in terms of the arts, sciences, and academic institutions.

Art museums like the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Institute of Contemporary Art satiate Bostonians in search of art and beauty, providing nearly limitless opportunities to take in great works of art.

Events like Shakespeare on the Common, Longwood Symphony Orchestra Concerts at the Hatch Shell, the Boston Pops, and the Boston Ballet put on music and dance performances year-round at some of the most gorgeous theaters in the country. Symphony Hall, for example, where the Boston Pops play, is considered by many to be one of the most acoustically ideal concert halls in the world.

The Museum of Science and the New England Aquarium provide Boston's citizenry the chance to explore more scientific topics, while historical sites like the Paul Revere House, the Old North Church, Bunker Hill Monument, and the U.S.S. Constitution give Beantown a unique sense of context as a modern city that has carefully preserved much of its past. Even long-time residents of the city are often surprised at how much history is contained within the city limits, as even lesser-known historical moments are commemorated around the city by plaques and small monuments.
