I always enjoy going to the Fogg Museum in Cambridge, Ma. The historic stone building has been recently renovated incorporating a light and airy architectural addition creating great natural lighting; it is perfect for paintings and sculptures. Also you are able to see the museum staff and conservators at work in the higher levels of the building, repairing or studying a variety of art works. The collection itself has many familiar gems with great transition pieces of well-known artists. As I have been to this museum many times I can now go to a specific area of the Fogg and focus on a few pieces or concentrate on a certain time period rather than strolling through the whole museum reacquainting myself with the collection. Make sure you stop by while in Boston.
