Free Admission to the Gardner Museum for Neighborhood Nights!

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum BostonThe Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is opening their doors for FREE on Thursday, July 13, July 27, and August 10, 2017 from 5-9PM for Neighborhood Nights this summer in Boston!

Everyone is invited for Neighborhood Nights at the Gardner Museum especially neighbors from Fenway, Mission Hill, Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, and Dorchester. This is a great chance to check out amazing art at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum for free.

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is such a unique art museum and one of my favorites in Boston! I went to a Neighborhood Night a few years ago and it wasn’t too busy and it was very easy to get in the door for free!

I’ve included Neighborhood Nights in the weekly free things to do this week series, but I also wanted to highlight this event because it’s such a great museum and there isn’t as many free offers as other art museums in the city.

For more information about Neighborhood Nights and more, please head here.

Have you been to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum before? Will you be attending Neighborhood Nights?
