“One of the best museums I have visited”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

The Boston Museum of Fine Arts is one of the best museums I have visited. I like Impressionism, and I discovered the American Impressionists! There were painters I had never heard about before, beautiful paintings, awesome rooms. One of the highlights is going to the corners (inside the building) that have floor to ceiling windows, where they have some really good looking sculptures tucked there.
Another good thing is that the regular adult tickets (don't know about the others) allow a repeat visit within the following 10 days of the first visit. We couldn't go again, so we gave them away to some friends.

what's not to like? A world class collection, a new Americans wing, great contemporary and fine places to eat. Go.
