We have one day in the Boston area, two young teens and us, before a family event. We're looking for something a little different than the usual.
In the past, we've done the museums (science, aquarium), Boston Commons, Quincy Market, and gone to the North End for dinner. We did the TOMB thing as well. And the various art museums won't hold the boys' interest much.
We will probably use our day to go to Lincoln to see the outdoor sculpture museum (fresh air, big impressive things) and also the farm wildlife conservancy. But in case the weather turns nastier than expected and we need indoor entertainment, I'd love some backup suggestions.
Any interesting smaller museums that anyone can recommend? Or places to visit that are a little out of the way in the Boston area, worth seeing?
In Philadelphia, I would tell people to visit the Mutter Museum, for instance, as it's a lesser known museum and it's a real hidden treasure.
