My mother and I had about 2 hours to spend before leaving Boston and decided to visit the museum and we are very glad we did. We saw several of the permanent exhibits, including three fabulous collections of musical instruments, jewelry and model ships. We also caught several changing exhibits, including one of the British Royal Family and another on paintings from the White Mountains.
What I liked about this museum is that there is enough printed detail for each piece that you can go through without an audio guide (but they do have a guide - probably good if you have several hours to explore). Also, there was a wide variety of art, so there is something for everyone. We only covered about 1/3 of the museum in the 2 hours, and we went a little quickly. With how many changing exhibits, I plan on going back frequently now that I am moving to Boston.
