“An evening touring the museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

I toured the museum several weeks ago. Great art work and different catagories to visit. The Egyptian art is a little creepy and not my cup of tea. Enjoyed the Italian section and Christian art. The Cafe unstairs is nice but a little pricey although the service was excellent. The price is a little much for several hours but if you are an art fan maybe not too bad. You can go back the second for free however I did not have the time to go back. Overall, I am glad I visited.

“A Jewel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Although the trip to the MFA was business related and we had not been in almost 14 years. It was an amazing treat. The new Art of the Americas Wing is amazing and worth the trip.

So much to see give yourself enough time to enjoy it. Spent 3 hours here not nearly enough time. Loved looking at the portraits and early American furniture

“Great Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

This is a very nice place to spend just a few hours or the whole day. They have a great Cafe too. There are many world class, permanent exhibits - please do take at least one of their free guided tours to learn about the nuances of some paintings, etc. From time to time, there are special, temporary exhibits too. I would rate this amongst the top attractions in Boston - not to be rushed through!
