Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum:

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, an art museum in Boston, MA, was built by the American art collector Isabella Stewart Gardner in 1903. Originally built as her residence, in her will she asked for the art collection to be on exhibit to the public permanently. The building was designed to appear like a Venetian palace dating back to the 15th-century. Today, it has a collection including American, Asian, and European art. 

The museum is well known for being the site of an art theft in 1990, which is still unsolved. Thirteen works were stolen from the museum.
