I was so impressed by the great portraits and sculptures by so many great artists. It was very comfortable to move about the building and linger if I chose. No one minded if I took pictures. It was great, and it was free with my Mass Teacher's Association card. I would give it five stars, and probably shoud, but I like to leave room for improvement.

This was a hidden gem - I’m a Harvard alum and a Boston resident and had never been here until today - amazing collection and the gift shop inventory was terrific! A must do - military discount , too

The collections here are beyond impressive. They have incredible works from some of the most well-known artists in the world, and the pieces are all still in amazing condition. I was blown away to see what they had... and I’ve been to some of the premier museums in multiple, major cities. You almost need multiple trips to take it all in. Definitely make a point of stopping by here.

I went with no expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The collection is fairly small but well-curated. I didn't visit their cafe and shop so can't comment on them. Not too crowded even on the cold day. Well worth the visit.

The art is beautiful and well worth a visit. However, my visit was somewhat marred by the "elderly black lady", yes her again, previously mentioned in another review. I was taking a photo of a painting and she told me to stand at least a foot away. I was a bit taken aback, as I was standing a good 3 feet away, at least. Later on, she reappeared and told me from across the room to put my shoulder bag at my side, It was across my body, towards my back. I looked at her with amazement, as there were at least 4 people in the room with large rucksacks! I felt like I was being told off like a badly behaved child, not a woman of 60 years of age! I have to say, she spoiled what should have been an enjoyable visit. A few days later, we visited the Museum of Fine Arts. What a difference. Smiling. helpful staff. Harvard Art Museum, please take note.
