You mean the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. (Entrance to the museum is free of charge if your first name is Isabella, I believe).
Yes, it is wonderful, but certainly dated. That is by design. Her will states the layout of the museum should not change. Even when the artwork was stolen, they left the empty frames on the wall, to honor the will.
Nearby, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston is worth a visit. Their musical instrument collection is quite nice.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has a very neat annex called 'The Cloisters' in the far North of the city.
And, an exceedingly wonderful museum is the Worcester Art Museum.
