Love this museum. I never have a problem finding parking. The have two places to eat, with decent enough food, but the service staff could use a bit more training. There is so much to see at the MFA it is exhausting to try to do it all in one day. Exhibits are changed frequently which keeps it fresh.

I love the pictures of the famous artists (Renoir and Monet). The museum is so impressive for me and my family.

"I feel a little bit confused," quoted pat. This may have been because of the large open spaces and identecal restaurants. The exhibits were well put together, although the rooms were very warm. One of the restaurants features a glass object which was rather puzzling. "Who made that?" Pat asked. Cindy replied "Chule", which was an accurate guess. When dining, the waiters gave us the wrong meal, which appeared to be whipped vegetables, and we were forced to return it. A good museum, but with some downsides.

good permanent collection, nothing exceptional as guess exhibitions, at least to my expectation, but a good opportunity for visitors to see some of the local artist. Good group guide in several foreign languages.

We went during school vacation week and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Yes, the museum has many pieces that do not interest children, but it has so many more that do. Mine enjoyed seeking out works by the artists their art teacher has mentioned, and the mummies and weapons are always entertaining (albeit a bit morbid). The best part about going during school vacation week is that entrance to the museum is free for children, and there are so many activities geared toward them. There were scavenger hunts, art projects, and guides to help them find kid-friendly art/exhibits. On top of all that, the cafe was good, and we were able to eat in the gorgeous courtyard/garden.
