We don't know about you, but we love museums.

Not only are they excellent places to expand one's knowledge of and appreciation for people, places, events, and artifacts of the past and present, but there truly is something out there for everyone.

For those with an affinity for art, art museums display drawings, paintings, sculptures, architecture, and every other type of visual artwork imaginable. If you've got an appreciation for history, many museums cover the stories of various events, battles, historic figures, and more. Nature-lovers can enjoy museums focused on natural science and the countless organisms in our world. As we all know, there are also plenty of educational museums for kiddos that ignite a love of learning in fun and engaging ways.

The world's largest museum complex is undeniably the Smithsonian, situated in the heart of Washington, D.C.. It's comprised of museums like the Museum of American History, Air and Space Museum, and Museum of Natural History. But what about places that are a little closer to home, like Boston, Massachusetts?

Boston is much closer to us than D.C., and has so much going for it when it comes to arts and culture. There are plenty of museums there; some geared towards kids and families, others for adults. Either way, there's something for everyone to enjoy. So, let's look at eleven popular museums that people can check out when visiting the city.
