Gardner was a true Renaissance Woman - somewhat to the chagrin of her staid 19th-century contemporaries. Gardner used her money on an art shopping spree across Europe, snapping up Titians, Vermeers and Giottos. Her will turned her mansion into a museum - and mandated that it be left exactly as it was when she died, right down to the cut-out figures she had installed to keep residents of the mansion company. Located within easy walking distance of the MFA.

The Nichols House Museum offers a unique glimpse into late 19th and early 20th century domestic life on Boston's historic Beacon Hill. The four-story townhouse was built in 1804 during the early development of Beacon Hill. The original Federal design is attributed to Charles Bulfinch. The interiors are decorated with original furnishings of the Nichols' family. The museum offers an active schedule of lectures, events, and educational programs throughout the year.
"No tax on tea! That was the decision on December 16, 1773, when 5,000 angry colonists gathered at the Old South Meeting House to protest a tax and started a revolution with the Boston Tea Party. Built in 1729, the Old South Meeting House was the largest building in colonial Boston, and provided a stage for the drama of the American Revolution. African American poet Phillis Wheatley and statesman Benjamin Franklin were members of Old South's congregation. As a meeting place and a haven for free speech and assembly, Old South Meeting House has been in continuous use for over 250 years. Today you can visit this National Historic Landmark and experience events that shaped our country through the new multimedia exhibition, Voices of Protest."
