For those who are into the arts, Boston is an ideal city. Regardless of which of the many Boston area apartments you choose to settle in, you will be in close proximity (via subway, train or on foot) to exceptional museums and art centers. Two of the more popular art museums in the area are the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and the Institute of Contemporary Art.
The MFA, easily accessible by the T, is one of the largest museums in the country, housing nearly 450,000 works of art from ancient Egyptian to contemporary. For an admission of $17 (which is good for 2-days within a 10-day period), you can peruse the collections on your own or take advantage of a guided tour.
The Institute of Contemporary Art is located on the Waterfront and is also conveniently accessible by T. This venue features a wide variety of pieces from current artists all over the world. The ultramodern building in which it is located is part of the art as well.
If you decide to rent apartments Boston has available, you are sure to have ample choices to enjoy all the culture the city has to offer.
