The Courtyard

Throughout the year, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s always-blooming Courtyard is transformed through a series of nine dramatic seasonal displays that reflect Isabella’s passion for gardens as well as the skill and dedication of the Museum's horticulture staff. From orchids to nasturtiums to Japanese-style chrysanthemums, there’s always something new to discover thanks to the changing seasons and the rotation of plants. 

Gift at the Gardner's Courtyard collection honors the Mrs. Gardner's love of florals (represented in the gardens and art collection she cultivated) and the hard work of the Museum's horticulture department. Here, you will find custom Gardner Museum products inspired by the Courtyard, from accessories and jewelry to sweets and gardening gifts.
