This is a lovely place to spend a day, lunch to rest your feet in any of the cafés or restaurants and sit in the courtyard and think about the beautiful things you've seen. I could wander around time and time again!

The staff were so welcoming and took our visit from pleasant to outstanding. The pieces were beautifully presented and the audio guide was clear, easy to use and added to the presentation. Knowledgable and helpful staff were the icing on the cake.

This museum entered my personal top 5 of best museums in the world in the first five minutes. It's impressive facade hides a vast floor plan of wings and more wings exquisitely packed with fine art. It's so big we were not able to grap a hold of even half of the collection in 5 hours of walking around. At... More

When we planned our trip, we allowed two hours to view this Museum. What a diverse place! We could have stayed longer but they were closing. It was so much larger than we expected. The Jamie Wyeth exhibit was fabulous..glad we got to see it.

This is one of the great museums of the world. This is clear. But the help needs work. We asked several questions on the first floor and three times in a row the answer was "Yup." Then we asked where we could find a cab and the answer was "They are lined up on Huntington." There were none there. The... More

Having spent many hours in museums both in America and abroad, the MFA is by far, the best museum to view "the masters" up close. Expecting to see local artists during the revolutionary period, we surprising experienced so much more. Thoroughly enjoyed the early colonial art but was blown away with the European Impressionalist collection. Impressive to say the least.... More
