The Fogg Art Museum

One of the many perks of investing in a Cambridge condo is the area itself. Along with the city’s diverse attractions, dining options, and hot spots, this intellectual haven offers many cultural and historical destinations,  all within a convenient and walkable epicenter. These attractions are part of what makes Cambridge one of the most beloved areas to live, in the Greater Boston area.

Cambridge is filled with venues that will stimulate your mind. While there are many options, be sure to visit the Harvard Art Museums (which include the Fogg Art Museum, complete with a collection of fine German art), the Harvard Museum of Natural History, and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. Cambridge is also home to the List Visual Arts Center, which exhibits contemporary and multi-media collections on the beautiful MIT campus.

Those with an interest in our nation’s past will be pleased to note that Cambridge is filled with historical sites, like the Longfellow House Washington’s Headquarters that preserves the home of 19th century American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, which also served as headquarters for General George Washington during the Siege of Boston. Another historic building, The Harvard Lampoon Building, also referred to as Lampoon Castle because of it’s Mock Flemish style, is not far from Harvard Yard and a popular stop for sightseers.
