It’s amazing to see what they call art these days. I thought the $15 non-member price was a little steep for one gallery floor. Nothing else was open except the gift shop which had a lot of books and cool items. The ICA is conveniently...More
This review is specifically about the new "wing" of the ICA in East Boston, the ICA Watershed. It's fun, in and of itself, particularly on a lovely summer day. Don't go expecting to spend hours in the museum. You could walk from front to back...More
The ICA is a fun place to go, especially with the Seaport now booming with development. The building is very impressive architecturally, especially being right on the water. The actual exhibits themselves are OK, nothing to rave about, but a fun thing to do. We...More
This museum is somewhat different than what we've been experiencing. However, this did have some very interesting pieces to enlighten the mind to some new ideas. A most enjoyable experience is the view in the rear of the museum overlooking the Harbor. It is spectacular....More

This area has been expanding and becoming more and more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the seaport district of South Boston is located beautifully along the water. The area is designed for easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets. The Institute of Contemporary Art is located in this area in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning
deck overlooking the water. In the summer time there are Friday music concerts on the deck of the museum. Nearby, there are many green spaces to enjoy.
