My mom and I were in Boston for a business trip and took a few hours to check out the Museum. We could have gone for 2 days! The art is incredible, they have a wonderful collection. Jamie Wyeth was the featured artist, if going to Boston soon (posting July 2014) try to see it, well worth it!

We arrived at 4:45, which is the EXACT time that this beautiful museum closes on Mondays and Tuesdays. I know that I would have loved it. The gift shop looked amazing. The security woman was very nice to us and told us the museum was now closed. I told her we have lousy timing! The a/c was very refreshing after... More

We saw the special quilt exhibit. So many great exhibits. Pick what you want to see and see that first.

If you are in town,the exhibit for Jamie Wyeth is worth the visit. There is so much to see and absorb. I highly recommend the 3 In 30 tours.

We spent almost six hours in the MFA over two days (your tickets get you in free the second day so keep 'em). And Wednesday after 4 p.m. it's entry by donation. We barely scratched the surface but came away satisfied and wanting to return. Highly recommend the hour walking overview tour that sweeps you through the museum's collection highlights...an... More

I went for the Dance at Bougival by Renoir. (If you are a Gilmore Girl fan you will want to see it.) It was gorgeous! There were many Monet's as well! I loved it and I'm really glad I went!

The MFA is a world class museum with many collections, but if you are a fan of French Impressionist art, this is a must see in Boston. The collection is massive and you only see a portion of it. While in Vegas 10 years ago, the Bellagio held a Monet exhibit and every painting was from the collection of the... More

I loved the rotunda in the building. There was so much to look at and very great, well-known artists. It is definitely a top notch art museum comparable to other main cities in the country. The atrium was nice and had live music and food. The floor plan was not bad, some museums are confusing, but it was pretty easy... More
