Boston Museum of Fine Arts

What a wonderful museum. I was able to spend hours here without getting tired or bored. Actually would have liked to spend more time here.

Free on wednesdays after 4pm. So much to see. Favorite sections are ancient and europe, but everything is really impressive. It can easily take up a full day or two, or even longer if you want to read everything, listen to the tours, etc. I come about once a month and find new and interesting things every time.

The MFA houses a vast collection of treasures. They continually and simultaneously offer several, special exhibits loaned from around the world. Each visit is a treat.

One of my teacher asks the students to visit the museum and write an Assay. I took the whole family and we had a great time, we were able to make memories.

Love visiting the MFA!. Sometimes just for a long lunch since I work nearby. The restaurants are great and there's always something new being displayed in addition to the regular favorites. Especially love Art in Bloom when local garden clubs do art in flowers!

Some parts of the world were represented better and given enough interesting material.While China section was way too big and filled with abudent little pots and furniture, Middle east(little more), India and south America needed more attention/

It was very good and my son graduated from Wentworth so we got passes from the Library. The one thing that surprised me is they give you no warning that they are closing they just abruptly start clearing people out.........really takes away from mood!

Many types of art can be found here. Enjoyed the museum very much. My favorite section is the Egyptian section.

The featured exhibits are always a reason to go often. It is nice to go one the free evening, but it might be a little crowded then.
