6 hours in Boston - what to do?

We're spending 6 hours in Boston enroute to London and would like to get out and see the city while we are there. We're travelling with a 3-year old so don't want to to engage in anything intensive. Also, they're forecasting light snow showers for the day so can't really do anything outdoorsy. Any recommendations will be much appreciated.

Thank you.

The Aquarium is probably a good idea. Most three year olds love it and it's a good choice location wise also because it's right next to the train to/from the airport (Blue line). The train stop is called Aquarium.

You'd also be very close to Faneuil Hall market place where you could go and grab lunch, or whatever, if you have extra time.
