“World class museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Really good collection of Impressionists. Lots of other areas of the museum were also excellent (Ancient art, etc). Friendly staff, good facilities, restaurants, etc.

“Worth a long visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

A good idea to plan two visits of around 4 hours each. The museum is extensive. A phenomenal collection of Ancient Egyptian art, and the Impressionist gallery is equally impressive. Don't forget to stop by the contemporary collection too.

“Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I have not been here for many years. They have a gorgeous new wing. We only had a few hours and mostly roamed the American side of things. Also took in fascinating postcard exhibit. Perhaps someday I'll return with more time.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Spent a whole day here and would return again when in Boston. Varied exhibits from pre history to contemporary art set in a magnificent gallery- no expense spared here!
