Fodor's Review

Diehards still moan about the loss of the old Boston Garden, a much more intimate venue than this mammoth facility, which opened in 1995. Regardless, the home of the Celtics (basketball) and Bruins (hockey) is still known as the good old "Gah-den," and its air-conditioning, comfier seats, improved food selection, 1,200-vehicle parking garage, and nearly double number of bathrooms, has won grudging acceptance. The Garden also serves as a concert venue, featuring big-name

acts, like Justin Timberlake and Nine Inch Nails. On occasion, there are public-skating events in winter; call ahead for information.

Sports Museum of New England. The fifth and sixth levels of the TD Garden house the Sports Museum of New England, where displays of memorabilia and photographs showcase local sports history and legends. Take a tour of the locker and interview rooms (off-season only), test your sports knowledge with interactive games, and see how you stand up to life-size statues of heroes Carl Yastrzemski and Larry Bird. The museum is generally open daily 10–4, but call ahead to confirm. Admission is $10. Use west premium seating entrance. 617/624–1234. www.sportsmuseum.org. $10.
