I have been to the Museum of Fine Arts many times over the years. Each time I fall more in love. The Museum boasts one of the finest collection of Old Kingdom Egyptian art in the world. Apart from the Egyptian section, my other person favorite is the museum's collection of Dutch Renaissance paintings. I especially love the Frans Hals portrait of a man and the tiny Rembrandt sell portrait. The new Art of the America's wing, which contains artwork from Copley and Sargent and silver from Paul Revere, is also well-worth the visit.
The building of the MFA is also worth seeing. The rotunda is beautiful and there are several Sargent murals. The courtyard is also a nice place to relax on a sunny day.
The museum's special exhibitions tend to get crowded so I would recommend visiting these exhibits on weekdays if at all possible. Also, on Wednesday nights the museum offers free drawing supplies for the public to use to sketch the artwork or clothed models.
The MFA is a must see for any art lover in the Boston area!
