Boston’s Best Museum Exhibits To See This Fall
" All year round, the many museums of Boston show off their permanent exhibits. When the seasons change, or when they get an opportunity to show something new, they offer new or temporary exhibits for residents and visitors that range from the scientific to the artistic. This fall, several of Boston’s museums will feature new and wonderful exhibits. There are many of them to choose from, but whatever you do, don’t miss these.

“Framed: Step Into Art” gives children the opportunity to interact physically with representations of famous works of art. The exhibit includes three-dimensional interpretations of pieces such as “Camp at Lake O’Hara” by John Singer Sargent and “Corn Festival” by Diego Rivera. Visitors can walk into the frames and play inside the piece of art. There is also a two-dimensional Mona Lisa with her face cut out so visitors can take pictures with their faces in place of Mona Lisa’s.
