Two art museums in Boston are opening their doors for free Tuesday to help residents and visitors heal from the deadly explosions that rocked the Boston Marathon on Monday.
The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston on the city's waterfront announced the free admission via Twitter and added: "We hope the museum will offer a place of community & reflection."
The Museum of Fine Arts also will be free with activities such as story hours for families and children and art-making workshops designed to keep young and old focused on something other than the blast. "We hope the Museum will be a place of respite for our community," the museum tweeted.
However the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum and the USS Constitution at the Navy Yard in Charlestown are closed Tuesday.
