Art Museum
“The Harvard Art Museum is not the size of the Museum of Fine Arts or Gardner Museum in Boston (both of which are amazing), but has a very impressive collection, is housed in a gorgeous, recently gut-renovated building, and is large enough that you undoubtedly will be unable to see the whole thing in one visit. There is also currently (through July 28) a special exhibit called The Bauhaus and Harvard that is quite good and showcases the University’s Bauhaus collection, which is the largest in the world outside of Germany.”

While it sounds like a single venue - it is actually 3 distinct music venues: Middle East Corner (free live music), Middle East Downstairs (larger music venue with covers between $10-20), Middle East Upstairs (more acoustic type acts with small cover).”
