The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum formerly known as Fenway Court is an art museum in Boston, USA. The museum was opened in 1903 by Isabella Stewart Gardner who had started to build a collection of art from around the world including European, Asian and American art. The museum is high profile due to it being the victim of a heist in which 13 of its art pieces were stolen in 1990, in which zero of the works have been recovered.
If travelling by car, only a limited amount of parking is available in which some of the spaces are free and some are metered. If travelling by Subway, take the green line to the ‘Museum of Fine Arts’ stop or the orange line to the ‘Ruggles’ stop. By bus, the Gardner Museum is accessible by the 8, 19, 39, 47, CT2, and CT3 bus routes.
