One of the most beautiful buildings in the U.S. Comprehensive collections. Enjoyed the Gordon Parks exhibit. One caveat - the high cost of nearby parking and entrance fee.

We visit museum several times a year. Usually we bring kids and teens with us.

That may be, but the Boston Museum of Fine Arts has more than just paintings. When I took my daughter... More

I'm not a big art museum fan, but for an art museum, it's very nice. Lots of things to see. You can get in for free one weekend a month if you're a BoA card holder. (Look up the schedule.)
