The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.

The popular, summer-long Free Fun Fridays continues at venues in the Boston area this week. Every Friday throughout the summer a number of museums, performances, and attractions are free of charge, courtesy of the Highland Street Foundation. Yes, that's right. FREE. This week's free activities include the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Museum of African American History, the New Bedford Whaling Museum, the Fitchburg Art Museum, the Fruitlands Museum, and the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. Though admission is free, normal parking rates will still apply, and some free hours vary by vendor. Please visit each venue's website for information. Also note that some ticket quantities are limited and available on a first-come basis, particularly for theaters and performances, and, in some cases, pre-registration is required. Friday, Aug. 23. Free. All ages. Locations vary.
