The ICA is located on the waterfront of one of North America’s most walkable cities. This flourishing neighborhood and burgeoning creative center is home to cultural and historic attractions such as the Children’s Museum, the New England Aquarium, Fort Point, the Rafael Viñoly-designed Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, a variety of exciting restaurants, new hotels, and residences—all just a short walk from the ICA and part of a transformed, vibrant new Boston. The ICA is one of the jewels along the Harborwalk, an inviting public walkway around Boston Harbor with parks, public art, seating areas, cafes, and more.
