Museum lovers love the Hub, home to world-famous repository of art such as the Museum of Fine Arts and The Institute of Contemporary Art. The Fairmont Copley Plaza and Fairmont Battery Wharf have deals for guests who want a stay in a luxury hotel and visit those museums.

The Fairmont Battery Wharf is offering the ICA “Ahts” by water package, giving guests the chance to visit the cutting-edge museum and offering dock-to-dock service from the hotel to the museum via water taxi. The package includes two roundtrip rides, two tickets to the ICA, overnight accommodations and breakfast for two at the hotel’s Aragosta Bar & Bistro. The package starts at $339 and is available through Oct. 30.

Built on the original site of the Museum of Fine Arts, the Fairmont Copley Plazas “Museum of Fine Arts Weekend Package” allows guests to see the museum’s expansive collection of art from Egypt and Asia, and from periods such as Impressionism to American art. The museum’s new “Art of the Americas Wing,” scheduled to open to the public Nov. 20, consists of 53 new galleries. The new Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art just opened in September. The Fairmont Copley package, good through Dec. 31 with rates starting at $219, includes two tickets to the MFA and overnight accommodations
