This is a terrific art museum, with so many works by masters. We didn't allow enough time, so sort of raced through what we could. It is wonderful.

Wonderful museum exhibits. Great way to spend an afternoon then have lunch in their restaurant . A bit of a walk from Copley Place hotels but certainly doable.

Wonderful museum full of treasures. The staff was exceptionally helpful, if we even looked like we might be wondering where to go we were immediately approached to see if we needed assistance.

One of the premier art museums in the country -- not too far below those in NYC or LA. Really. A very wide variety of art from ancient to modern, but it's the 19th century Americana and European Impressionist collections that shine. John Singer Sargent...More
