The museum introduces viewers to one of the most remarkable and intimate collections of art in the world today: The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, setting of one of the largest art heists in history, has an internationally important collection of over 2,500 objects, including paintings, sculpture, furniture, drawings, rare books and more. Recommended reading for the MFA trip are “Mrs. Jack,” by Louis Tharp and “The Gardner Heist: The True Story of the World’s Largest Unsolved Art Heist,” by Ulrich Boser.
