This photography exhibition was a very powerful female view of life and war in the Arab World. Brilliant.

The MFA is outstanding and overwhelming. Their rotating exhibits are great and we enjoyed the current Singer Sargent watercolor exhibit.

On the art circuit, you can often get bogged down at huge institutions like the Met and the Art Institute of Chicago. The Boston MFA is, to my mind, just the right size. You see plenty, but you don't get overwhelmed. I had one of their audio guides and I have to say that it was a total pleasure! Well produced and with different narrators and approaches. Super.

I have been fortunate enough to go to many Arts Museums around the world - this is probably the best of all and for me, rivals MOMA in New York and the range of museums in Madrid.

The staff are helpful, the art and artefacts are beautifully displayed and the Norman Foster glass, and concrete designed extensions to the original museum add fantastic space and light.

I visited on a weekday in mid-afternoon when the Museum was not too busy and there was time to browse, enjoy, relax and contemplate - a fabulous experience.

I never go to a museum to see everything. That's impossible. But in the Museum of Fine arts I have spent much more time than I expected. Because it has so many beautiful works to show. The special exhibitions are well researched, original, a good setting and they are full of discoveries. But the museum has a very nice own collection. And there is space enough and it is not too crowded , so that you can watch everything at ease. Go there !
