Not sure I like the art work outside the museum – large inflatable garden deity. Looks plain ugly to me, but I am not an expert.

Out in the museum lawns – never miss the art around you in the nature. No tickets needed 🙂
Invisible garden flowers. Not too appealing to me.
Isabella Stewart Gardner museum is one of the most eclectic museums I ever visited. The museum displays gardner’s collection of art from ancient rome, the renaissance period and asia (mainly tapestries) among others. Don’t miss the Rembrandt’s self portrait and Titan’s ‘The Rape of Europa’ if you visit. Unfortunately the museum does not allow photography except for in the gardens and courtyards. A wholesome collection and definitely worth a visit or two.
