Special Exhibits Included with CityPASS

Museum of Science

The Photography of Modernist Cuisine
This exhibit reveals the colorful and surprising world of food as you have never seen it before. Accomplished scientist, author, and photographer Nathan Myhrvold uses hyper-magnified shots and cutaway views of food and cooking implements to offer a fresh perspective on familiar food sources. His work is evidence that the intersection of science and art can be as beautiful as it is enlightening.

Water Stories: Conversations in Paint and Sound
Open through January 4, 2015
Anne Neely's paintings, complemented by artist Halsey Burgund's soundscapes, invite inquiry into water's role in our world and how we affect it.

Animals Without Passports

Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Jamie Wyeth
Open through December 28, 2014
The first comprehensive retrospective of artist Jamie Wyeth will examine his imaginative approach to realism over the course of six decades, from his earliest childhood drawings through various recurring themes inspired by the people, places, and objects that populate his world. A member of a family of artists, Jamie Wyeth has followed a unique path, training with his aunt Carolyn after leaving school at age 11, studying anatomy in a New York City morgue and working in Andy Warhol’s New York studio, The Factory. Jamie Wyeth will include approximately 100 paintings, works on paper, illustrations, and assemblages created by the artist, many in a range of "combined mediums," his preferred term for the distinctive technique he brings to his compositions.

Goya: Order and Disorder
Open through January 9, 2015
One of the titans of European art, Francisco Goya (1746–1828) witnessed a time of revolution and sweeping change in thought and behavior. As 18th-century culture gave way to the modern era, Goya’s penetrating gaze sought new means to capture human experience, both as he observed it, and as his imagination and artistic gifts transformed it. Goya: Order and Disorder takes an innovative approach, organizing the extreme variety of the artist’s output thematically. The exhibition employs the poles of order and disorder to structure Goya’s creativity, moving from dignified portraits and daily rituals to the chaos of war and the pandemonium of the Bordeaux bull ring. The largest Goya exhibition in North America in a quarter century, Goya: Order and Disorder is on view only at the MFA.

Jasper Johns: Picture Puzzles
Open through January 4, 2015
One of the greatest American draftsmen and creative printmakers from the 1960s to the present, Jasper Johns introduced new conceptual ideas about representation by focusing on signs and symbols that were inherently flat, such as numbers, flags, and targets. His works often involve a playful dialogue between art and illusion, between three-dimensionality and flatness, and between images and words. The artist’s prints are sophisticated variations on his paintings, and the idea of serial repetition with variation also plays a prominent role in his work. Jasper Johns: Picture Puzzles consists of 22 works by Johns, including prints, drawings, and relief sculpture.

Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen
Open through March 8, 2015
Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen presents designer gowns and exquisite jewelry from the 1930s and ‘40s—the most glamorous years of Hollywood film. The exhibition focuses on the iconic style of sultry starlets of the period, including Gloria Swanson, Anna May Wong, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Mae West, and Joan Crawford. Along with eye-catching gowns once worn by famous figures and the sparkling jewels that contributed to their allure from the MFA and private collections, photography by Edward Steichen along with period photographs, film stills, and film clips capture the style of the silver screen era.

Harvard Museum of Natural History

Climate Change: Our Global Experiment
It's an insider's look at the science of climate developed in collaboration with the Harvard University Center for the Environment. Climate Change highlights the latest scientific studies about the Earth's climate.

Final Flight: The Extinction of the Passenger Pigeon
Open through February 28, 2015
This exhibit marks the 100th anniversary of the death of the last passenger pigeon, a species that once filled North America’s skies by the billions. In this small exhibit at the Harvard Museum of Natural History, see one of the world’s last mounted specimens of this now vanquished bird and learn how its extinction inspired the protection of other species.

Thoreau's Maine Woods: A Journey in Photographs with Scot Miller
Open through February 15, 2015
In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Henry David Thoreau's The Maine Woods, the Harvard Museum of Natural History offers an exhibition of finely crafted photographic prints by photographer Scot Miller, who has traversed the state of Maine for years retracing the the footsteps of New England's native son, Henry David Thoreau. Thoreau's Maine Woods: A Journey in Photographs with Scot Miller features stunning photographs of many places that Thoreau explored and wrote about along with historical information and natural history specimens from Harvard's collections. The exhibition compliments the ongoing exhibition, New England Forests in the Zofnass Family Gallery.

Sea Creatures in Glass
Sea Creatures in Glass: Blaschka Models of Marine Invertebrates features recently restored hand-crafted glass models created by famed glass artists Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka. From delicate jellyfish and anemones to tentacled squid and bizarre sea slugs, these spectacular models were purchased by Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology during the latter half of the nineteenth century, and many have not been on display for decades.

Dining

Spotlight: Central Wharf Co — New American

Bostonians know this as the former Jose McIntyre’s, a bar with an Irish-Mexican theme and floors as sticky as the crowd was college-aged. But Glynn Group’s new vision does justice to its historic building, pairing modern touches with the rusticity of exposed brick walls and framed vintage newsprint. Menu is a mix of tasty bar food like Asian-flaired wonton nachos and hearty sandwiches like buttermilk fried chicken. Learn more

More Great Spots to Dine

Boston’s Downtown Crossing neighborhood gets a new shine this season as Roger Berkowitz’s Legal Crossing (LX) debuts in brand new Millennium Place. LX is an ultra modern take on parent Legal Sea Foods, substituting the brand’s recipe for quintessential New England dining experience with sleek marble and wood decor, playful cocktails and Rich Vellante’s evolutionary Asian flavor-laced menu. Shucked oysters come served with jalapeno and melon sorbets, and salmon is glazed with hoisin sauce and paired with pad Thai noodles. Diners who want something simple enjoy seared, grilled or broiled fish. Learn more

Chef and owner Todd Winer's new pizza joint is elegant and homey, and features the best local ingredients gathered by farmers and foragers. When it comes to its signature specialty, Neapolitan pizza, the kitchen hews to the regulations of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, which decrees that true Neapolitan pizzas must bake in 900-plus degree, wood-fired, stone ovens. Also on the menu find small plates, salads and a couple of pasta dishes. Lots of local beers on tap. Learn more

James Beard Award-winning chefs Mark Gaier and Clark Frasier (Arrows, MC Perkins Cove) serve an Italian Renaissance-inspired menu that includes a salad recipe prepared by Leonardo da Vinci and a classic Bolognese ragu from one that dates to 1340. Also notable: the spit-roasted meats and the locally raised, sustainable ingredients. Learn more

This famous Boston restaurant traces its lineage all the way back to 1742, but it wasn’t until 1827 that it officially began its reign as Durgin-Park. On the menu, fish chowder and thick baked beans are a must; then try baked scrod and the hearty pot roast dinner. Communal tables dressed in red-and-white checkered tablecloths give the rustic upstairs dining room some elegance and the chance to chat with neighbors. Learn more

Shopping

Spotlight: Red Sox Team Store

This is the city’s—and the MLB’s—original souvenir store. Locally owned and family run since Ted Williams was on the mound, owner ‘47 Brand purveys officially licensed professional and collegiate sporting apparel and is notably known for its near-perfect fit caps. Red Sox gear is in the house, naturally, but the vast inventory includes everything from autographed Fenway Park seats to limited-edition Alex and Ani bracelets. Learn more

More Great Shopping

Learn more

A must-stop for home cooks, foodies, and anyone who appreciates cool and original items. Owner Abby Ruettgers sells a well-edited selection of antiquarian and new cookbooks, vintage drink sets, hand-molded artisan-made copper cooking pans, handmade recipe cards, and edible gift sets (Vermont maple syrup!

You can't go wrong on gear and get-ups at this Beacon Hill neighborhood kid's boutique, which boasts lovely upscale children's clothing, hair bows and toys from unusual and hard-to-find brands. Learn more

This tiny shop houses a vast collection of fine lithographic prints and maps—more than 75,000—that extends from the 15th century to the early 1900s and covers subject matter like botany, religion, academia and geography. Strong selection of Boston-related imagery. Learn more

Nightlife

Spotlight: Wink and Nod

This Prohibition-era speakeasy-style bar features mixologist Curtis McMillan at the bar. He puts a premium on liquors from craft distilleries and fresh juice, which he commingles in innovative cocktails poured into special glassware befitting their tone and flavor. Wink & Nod also serves up unique items like a bottled carbonated gin and tonic drink made with a house quinine syrup and the mysterious $100 "Black Card Cocktail." Very tasty selection of small plates. Learn more

More Nightlife & Entertainment

Started in 1986, Harpoon holds Massachusetts Brewery Permit No. 1, and has more than two decades creating traditional beer styles with contemporary flourish. In fact, one of the country’s best craft IPAs is brewed right here. Take an hourlong tour and tasting to learn about Harpoon’s equipment, processes and beer varieties, and then stay awhile in the Beer Hall for a pint and a tasty hot pretzel. Learn more

Michael Scelfo’s food at his new Harvard Square outpost tastes as good as it looks—unsurprising for fans of nearby Russell House, the chef’s former digs. Snacks like peppery grilled cauliflower caponata or charred broccoli with squash hummus and nutty cashew crumble are unexpected takes on veggies many people don’t normally love, but you will devour them. And then there are the entrees: oyster gratin, pork belly with grits, and one whimsical ‘secret’ burger. Learn more

It’s never more than 21 degrees inside this place. Grab a seat on a hand-carved ice banquette or belly up to the bar for a handcrafted cocktail served in an ice-made tumbler glass. Kids can sip mocktails until 5 pm, at which point the lights go down and club music starts pulsing. Learn more

This neighborhood bar located beneath Fenway Park’s bleachers offers a clear view straight into center field. While you watch the game live (or one on TV), you’ll find standards on tap and a deli-style menu of sandwiches like Britton beef on weck, pastrami and mustard, and a whole series of clubs. No cover; no reservations. Learn more

Beautiful Boston Views From Skywalk Observatory

I was about 11 or 12 when, on a family day trip to Boston, I first experienced a bird’s eye view of the city from the top of a skyscraper. We’d gone to the observation deck of the 60-story John Hancock Tower, and I was awestruck at the vast panorama of streets and buildings that spread out below. Something about the experience affected me deeply, and I still remember it vividly over 25 years later. read more »

Unusual Museums Throughout the US

Unusual Museums Throughout the US Most museums are buildings that serve as vaults for some of humanity's most culturally significant art and artifacts. Places like the Louvre in Paris, which houses the Mona Lisa, and the Museum of Natural History with its fantastic dioramas are classic examples of what most people think of when museums come to mind. Unfortunately, there are a large number of items and industries that have cultural significance that just can't find a home in a “normal” museum. Luckily, instead of being lost to history forever, there are plenty of unusual museums across the U.S. that cater to even the most obscure interests and cultural taste. read more »
