Boston Museum of Modern Art

Boston Discount Card Information


Initially named the Boston Museum of Modern Art, the museum became the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston (ICA) in 1948. In December 2006 they opened their current building which has massively lifted their attendance and profile in the Boston area.

Some have criticized this Boston art museum for having too many exhibits geared towards less experienced art fans, but overall it's been getting rave reviews from enthusiasts of all ages and backgrounds.
