Wonderful variety, not only between time-periods but in media! Went with six people in varring ages and there was something for everyone. A little hard to navigate being that time periods are in sections of each floor. Late hours make it a great place to explore on an evening in the city or as an optional evening attraction in a...

i had a day alone in Boston with my baby and we enjoyed our time. I loved the Hokusai exhibit and found the wood prints fascinating. The Egyptian gallery was impressive as well. With our time restraints I didn't see the entire museum but was pleased to see that my tickets was good for two visits in a 10 day... More

A great museum that's worth repeat visits. Check the website for free afternoons and weekends. These are well worth it. Although they 'ask' for a donation that is the same as the normal entrance fee, just be bold, smile and say 'No thanks!' Plenty of rooms as potential favourites. Mine is the C19th/c20th European Collectionwith so many masters, Degas, Monet,... More

This was a very good visit. Definitely worth the visit. I went strictly for the Time Capsule that was on display (AMAZING) and ended up staying and enjoying much of the other fine art displayed. A Must see

We were there for four hours and only went through the Americas portion. I would say we saw maybe 2% of the museum. It's an awesome place.

Wow what an amazing collection of artwork! I am not per-say an 'art' person but I was very impressed with this museum.

The museum is huge and there is so much to see. I wish that I would have had some more time to spend there. Make sure to plan enough time to see all the different sections.

I always thoroughly enjoy roaming the galleries of this Boston institution. Today was an April vacation weekday and my 8 year old participated in one of the drawing stations they have set up during vacation weeks for children to explore art more deeply. This is always so much fun to do. We also went from Art of the Americas to... More

Art in Bloom will be 4/24/2015-4/27/2015. I try to go every year. There are wondrous floral arrangements by different garden clubs and others and it is like a scavenger hunt as you take the map to find the arrangements which were created to complement or reimagine the piece of artwork by which the are sitting. Wear flowery clothes and be... More
