Beyond Boston: a guide to architecture, art, music, sculpture, views not to be missed if you have a car & want to walk and explore outside the city center

This page is somewhat under permanent construction, as I’ll add things on it when I find them, so come back regularly to see what’s new!


Addison Gallery of American Art: more like a small museum than a gallery, located at the prestigious Phillips Academy in Andover; free, with unique exhibitions geared to the education of students and the general public.

Rose Art Museum: Contemporary Art Museum at Brandeis University in Waltham; free and in my view, at least as interesting as the Institute of Contemporary Art in South Boston.


Brighton Music Hall: in Allston, a place small enough to go and listen to musicians that won’t be far from you, big enough to attract national and international talents. All of it for very reasonable prices.
