“One of the world's great art museums”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

The MFA is a classic Boston institution, with a superb collection of Impressionist paintings as well as fine examples of painting, photography, furniture and ceramics. It recently added a wing for modern art that's architecturally attractive but a bit thin in term so the collection. There's almost always an interesting special exhibit, and the building itself is worth the visit

“Worth a visit, but not a detour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2012

A provincial collection, and nothing compared to New York, but a pleasant building and some worthwhile Impressionist and American paintings (Sargent a highlight for me). The policy of not charging extra for special exhibitions is to be commended.
