After returning from Europe to meet up with a friend in Boston for a week, I was a bit skeptical about visiting another museum, particularly after three visits to the Prado among other museums. But my friend insisted and I'm glad she did. We got a map and after grabbing a quick breakfast in the cafeteria, we made our way... More

not too much to distinguish it from any other big city museum but it does have an amazing collection of MesoAmerican artifacts .... don't want to get into the ethics of what was "stolen/looted" ..... but it is far better than what we've seen in their countries of origin.

A truly world-class museum, with thoughtful traveling exhibitions, a vast collection and something to interest almost everyone. The building itself is huge and beautifully maintained, but it is easy to get a bit lost. We went on a Thursday, when the museum stays open late, so were able to see most, but not all, of what we had hoped. Favorites... More

Not only my husband and I but our 10 year old granddaughter really enjoyed our visit to the Museum of Fine Arts. So many amazing things to see and appreciate. I am a quilter and found lots of inspiration in the beautiful paintings.

We had a great time seeing the Magna Carta, and all the beautiful artwork. This place is just stunning.. we were blown away by the building itself, not to mention so many beautiful pieces of art. Definitely made our trip!

During our visit to the Museum Of Fine arts we left approximately two hours . Not even close to enough time. I have never been to a true art museum but this one left me overwhelmed. There is such variety and scope. Give it a try even if you are not a fan of the arts. Be sure to park... More

We decided on a recent trip to Boston to visit MFA. It's really too large for consumption all at one time but two great things we learned: Wed thru Fri evenings they stay open until 9:45. And when you buy a ticket you get 1 return visit within 10 days. The return is in tiny print at the bottom of... More
