At almost one hundred years old the venerable Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston’s Back Bay is paying homage to the new Art of the Americas wing at the Museum of Fine Arts with the Museum of Fine Arts Weekend Package.
The Fairmont Copley Plaza has strong ties to the Museum of Fine Arts; it occupies what was the museum’s original site in Copley Square. The museum has 450,000 artifacts in its collection, 5,000 of which are now housed in the fifty-three galleries of the Art of the Americas wing.
This package is ideal not only for art lovers but for anyone wanting to spend time enjoying other places of interest in Boston; taking a walk on the Freedom Trail, shopping on Newbury Street, riding the Swan Boats in the Public Garden, touring H.H. Richardson’s Trinity Church or the McKim building of the Boston Public Library with its John Singer Sargent murals, admiring the spectacular art at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, or attending a concert at Symphony Hall.
If that is not enough art and culture for you take the MBTA Redline train over to Harvard Square in Cambridge to visit the Harvard Museum of Natural History with its collection of Blaschka glass flowers or the Sackler Museum known for its collections of Asian art.
No matter how you enjoy yourselves it’s sure to be an artful weekend in Boston or Cambridge.
Available through December 31, 2011 the Museum of Fine Arts Weekend Package at the Fairmont Copley Plaza includes overnight accommodations and two tickets to the Museum of Fine Arts. Rates start at $219 per night.
