Good mall, has 3 level of stores. Does tend to get pretty crowded as it is accessible by public transportation so there is a good mix of people here. The food court is decent. There is a dunkin donuts and a Starbucks. Has your basic standard stores - victoria secrets, Abercrombie, AE, sephora, Yankee candle, apple, h&m, it's lacking some high end stores like Nordstroms, lord and Taylor, cache, saks, etc... For the most part, it's a good mall. As for restaurants there's a California kitchen and cheesecake. If you're a tourist, it's across the street from the museum of science... Park here! It's a lot cheaper.

When in Boston, Cambridgeside Galleria Mall is definitely a must-visit for shopping. There's a wide variety of stores and basically, everything you need can be found right here. Wonderful Wonderful Place!

A standard shopping mall, with all the usual contenders, Macys, Sears, etc. Food Hall is a good place for lunch.

Visited this mall a few times and its always clean and tidy with a good assortment of shops and places to eat.

The bank is really helpful here in exchanging travellers cheques without the fuss I experienced in other places.

However I did find Sears and Macy's a bit of a dissopointment, they seem to have lots of things but no real choice. Yankee candles was good and the store manager Diana was really helpful.

The food court has lots of choice and is always busy. .

This by far is one of the best malls I found in Boston. Plenty of shops a good food court and a clean enviroment. Anchored by Sears, Best Buys and Macy's. Plenty to choose from...Perfume, clothes, shoes, health, electronic and food. Allow yourself the day here for sure....
