so many exhiits, so little time to spend when on vacation. could spend a week here and not see it all. excellent trip.
Boston's MFA has an extensive collection of many types of art including the French impressionists, American furniture antiques, Eastern art, ancient sculpture, and so much more. When I was a kid the big draw was the Egyptian mummies! Now I'm attracted to their fascinating exhibits that have included Watercolors by John Singer Sargent, Ralph Lauren's collection of vintage motor cars,... More
The MFA has the reputation as one of the classic east coast art museums and it doesn't disappoint. The new addition of the American art is very well done. It really spreads the museum out yet makes it feel less overwhelming. There is so much to see that you could spend two day. The only negative was the price. Wow,... More
This museum is huge! So many exhibits. We went on a Wednesday evening because admission is free after 4. We only stayed a few hours but the quality of pieces is amazing.
i love the MFA and am always happy to return when i am in boston. become a member and take advantage of the everchanging exhibits and special events. since a one time entry has become so expensive, a yearly membership is economical if you think you may visit more that 2x in a year. there are 4+ choices for meals....food...

The American wing features both furnishings and paintings by American artists... More
A great collection from mummies to contemporary art with much in-between. Be forewarned it is huge so pick and choose what you would like to see as it takes more than a day to fully enjoy....
We were informed of the 'free/donations only' admission on Wednesday afternoon (after 3p.m.) by our trolley guide. It was a great way to spend the time when the trolley was finished. Great exhibits!
I was 6 years old the first time I walked into this museum and was totally blown away. Now, fifty years later I am still blown away each time I step into the door. Art in Bloom is the museum's May exhibit that joins area floral arrangers from local garden clubs with pieces of art. What results is an explosion... More
This museum can hold its own against top museums in Europe. The space is wonderful and the experience is relaxing, educational and fun! Enjoy lunch and a glass of wine while you people watch and plan your tour of exhibits. A nice way to spend the day with an old friend!
