There are more than 40 museums in the Boston area, so finding a few close to Four Seasons Hotel Boston will not be a problem. One of the closest museums to the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is the Museum of Fine Arts, which features art of Europe, the Americas and contemporary works. The MFA is accessible via the green E-line subway to the MFA stop, and once in the museum you can opt for a guided or self-guided tour. We also love The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. This mansion-turned-museum is also near the Museum of Fine Arts and a perfect spot for those who want to beat the heat during the summer months, or take in a grandiose display of elegance during the winter months. Gardner was one of Boston’s biggest supporters of the arts, and her home is decorated with some of the world’s most coveted artwork that dates back centuries. The Museum of Science and Children’s Museum are about a 10- to 20-minute taxi ride from Four Seasons Hotel Boston. Wear your walking shoes for these sites, or take a taxi or public transportation.
