Isabella Gardner Museum

I stumbled across this first photo and had to know more. This is the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston,if your name if Isabella you can get in free! Please tell me if you have ever visited there, I'm enthralled with this Lady and what she accomplished. I also wouldn't mind the landscaping or those windows!
Isabella Stewart Gardner first welcomed visitors to her museum on New Year's Day, 1903. On that evening guests listened to the music of Bach, Mozart, and Schumann, gazed in wonder at the courtyard full of flowers, and viewed one of the nation's finest collections of art. Today, visitors experience much the same thing. The Gardner Museum has remained essentially unchanged since its founder's death in 1924. Unchanged but certainly not stagnant. Three floors of galleries surround a garden courtyard blooming with life in all seasons.
