If you’re looking for museum dates to set the mood for romance or just a fun time with friends, we’ve got you covered with our Valentine’s Day roundup.

Harvard Museum of Natural History

If you enjoy making fun of bad taxidermy with your partner or admiring a room full of sparkling gems, this is the spot for you. Bonus points if you buy a Valentine’s gift from the top tier gift shop.

Museum of Science

Hands-on learning always makes for a fun date (wink)! The Museum of Science offers plenty of opportunities to engage in fun discovery with your partner. Check out the Garden Walk for a little bit of Spring in February.

Isabella Stewart Gardner

Lovers of mystery and true crime might enjoy the site of the famous heist, still the single largest property theft in the world. Sleuthing aside, touring the grand rooms of the Gardner and looking out over the courtyard is enough to make anyone swoon

Boston Athenaeum

If you’re looking for book-filled romance straight out of Beauty and the Beast, the Boston Athenaeum is the perfect date for bibliophiles. Founded in 1807, the Athenaeum is one of the oldest independent libraries in the United States. Visitors can buy a pass for admission to the first floor or level up your date with a day membership.
