9 museums every college student in Boston should visit before they graduate

波士顿的大学生毕业前不可不去的九大博物馆

By Yazhou Sun May 2, 2014 5:01 pm

One of the perks of being a college student in Boston is the easy access to many renowned museums in the world: Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Science and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, to name just a few. However, Beantown is also home to many unique museums dedicated to archiving eccentric things, such as burnt food, plumbing supplies and military weapons.

作为波士顿的大学生的特权之一就是很容易进入很多世界驰名的博物馆:波士顿美术馆、科学博物馆、伊莎贝拉·斯图尔特·加德纳博物馆,这些只是冰山一角。而豆子城(波士顿的别称)同样也是很多致力于收集古怪事物的博物馆的家园,比如说烧焦的事物、管道用品以及军事武器。

Here are 10 unique museums that all Bostonian students should pay a visit to.

以下则是10个值得所有波士顿的大学生一游的独特博物馆。

Museum of Bad Art 糟糕美术馆

The stuff in MOBA is so bad, it will make your childhood scribbles look like Da Vinci’s early works. The artworks are usually displayed in basements, next to bathrooms and with hideous lighting. It’s always free to see, but only rarely will you find MOBA staff on site.

该美术馆的东西真是够烂了,它让你童年的涂鸦看上去像达芬奇的早期作品。艺术品通常在地下室展出,而地下室里灯光诡异,旁边则是盥洗室。它总是免费开放,但是你很少能在那儿找到博物馆的工作人员。

Waterworks Museum 自来水工艺馆

Ever wonder where your water comes from? Before you say “from the tap,” think again. Located on the site of the Chestnut Hill Reservoir near Boston College, the Waterworks Museum is the place to go to learn all about, well, water in the Boston region. You’ll come away knowing why clean water is important for a growing city (as Boston was in the late 1800s when this pumping station was built) and how water impacts public health.

想过自来水从哪儿来么?在你说“从水龙头来”之前,再想想。该馆坐落在临近波士顿大学的板栗山水库旁,它让你了解所有的——关于波士顿地区自来水的事儿。你可以来了解了解为什么对一个成长中的城市净水如此重要(波士顿是在19世纪期间建立的抽水站)以及自来水如何影响公众健康。

Burnt Food Museum “焦味”馆

In the late 1980s, Deborah Henson-Conant, the curator of this museum heated and scalded hot apple cider, which became the inspiration for its opening. Explore exhibits like “Thrice Baked Potato” or “Why Sure, You Can Bake Quiche in the Microwave.” Rather than scolding yourself for burning your dinner, celebrate it as the museum does.

上世纪80年代末,该馆的馆长黛博拉·亨森·柯南特在加热苹果醋时不小心使其烧焦后萌生了建立这么一所博物馆的念头。你可以试试这样的展览,比如说“极度烤土豆”或者“为何不确定,你可以用微波炉烤乳蛋饼”。与其对你搞砸晚餐横加指责,不如像这个博物馆一样赞美一番

Boston Fire Museum波士顿救火(消防)博物馆

If you’re curious about the Boston firefighting history, the Boston Fire Museum is the place for you. It’s a tiny museum in the Seaport district, easily missed because it only opens on Saturdays. The museum features historic fire apparatus, firefighting equipment like slat sleds and thawing devices, and examples of many early alarms.

如果你对波士顿的救火史(消防史)很感兴趣,可以去波士顿救火博物馆逛逛。这是一个坐落在海港区的小型馆,因为它只在星期六开放,你很容易无功而返。这座博物馆的特色是历史上的灭火器还有诸如板条雪橇以及融化装置的消防设备,还有很多早期警报器的样本。

The Plumbing Museum管道博物馆

Do you know what’s going on in the pipes behind our walls? Probably not. Well, if you care to know, swing by the Plumbing Museum to discover everything that you never knew about plumbing systems and technologies. You will walk out the door flushed with knowledge.

你知道我们墙厚的管道里在发生着什么吗?大概不知道吧。好吧,如果你诚心想了解,去管道博物馆短暂拜访,你就能知道关于管道系统与技术的所有事情。当你步出大门,脑袋里涌动着“流水”的知识呢。

Warren Anatomical Museum沃伦解剖馆

Part of Harvard Medical School’s Center for the History of Medicine, the Warren Anatomical Museum contains all sorts of artifacts that may make you a little uneasy (or queasy) if you aren’t used to this kind of stuff. There are neat historical medical and anatomical items on display, like the skull and life cast of Phineas Gage and the tamping iron that famously blew straight through his head. This body of artifacts will leave you breathless.

作为哈佛大学医学院药史中心的一部分,沃伦解剖馆有着各种人体部件,如果你对这种东西不熟悉,你会有点不适(甚至呕吐)。这里展示的是干净而历史悠久的解剖物,比如说菲尼亚斯·加格的头盖骨和骨架,以及那块飞到他头上的著名的烙铁。这具尸体的各个部件会让你喘不过气。

Museum of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts

麻省旧时光辉大炮公司博物馆

The Museum of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts is a great place for lovers of military memorabilia. Visitors will find weapons, regalia, uniforms and more. The museum is hidden at the top of Faneuil Hall in one of the busiest places in Boston. Guests of the hall usually miss the final staircase to the museum and miss the museum, but it is there and is not as busy as the rest of the building if you are looking to sneak away from the crowd.

麻省旧时光辉大炮公司是军事事物爱好者的绝佳去处。游客可以看到武器、徽章、制服以及更多的东西。这座博物馆深藏在法尼尔厅的最顶端,这里也正是波士顿最繁荣的地方之一。到该大厅的游客经常会忽视登上这座博物馆的最终台阶,所以他们总是错过博物馆。但是这里就是不像这栋大楼的其他地方一样繁忙,如果你想从人群中解脱,这儿正是你的地方。

Larz Anderson Auto Museum

The museum is a collection of America’s oldest cars by wealthy socialites Larz and Isabel Anderson at their Brookline home. The Andersons opened their doors to their spectacular Carriage House on Sunday afternoons to share their collection of American and European vehicles. The Andersons purchased an automobile nearly every year, acquiring 32 brand new motorcars, 14 of which remain in the museum’s collection, alongside horse-drawn carriages.

这个博物馆展出的是有钱的社会名流拉兹·安德森和伊莎贝尔·安德森在他们布鲁克恩的家中收集的美国最古老的汽车。安德森夫妇在星期天下午会敞开大门让人们欣赏他们无与伦比的车房,一个有着各种美国和欧洲古老车型的车房。安德森夫妇大概一年买一辆车,现在他们已购得32个全新的汽车,其中的14个留在了博物馆中展示,一起展示的还有马车。

Public Health Museum 公众健康博物馆

Those are just a few of the fascinating – and sometimes frightening – medical artifacts on display at Tewksbury Hospital’s Public Health Museum, reopening with revamped exhibitions. Check out the collection and learn more about Massachusetts’s key role in public health history.

图克斯伯里医院的公共健康博物馆里展示的是一些吸引人的(并且有时吓人的)医用人体部件,重新修补后这些展览重新开放了。来这里看看展品,顺便更多地了解关于麻省的公共健康史上重要人物。

 

关于为什么9个跟10个矛盾的问题……我也不知道。也许写的这个中国人数学有点捉急
