Museum of Fine Arts
First opened in 1876, Museum of Fine Arts is one of the best in the United States and has sponsored impressive shows on Monet and John Singer Sargent. The MFA has outstanding collections of Impressionist art, early American art and artifacts, and Asian and Egyptian art. The museum also hosts lectures, musical performances and films.
I love the Museum of Fine Arts. It is a great place to visit if you appreciate art and how beautiful it can be in all differnt forms. My favorite part about the Museum: the Eqyptian section. It really is a great place to go.
Boston MFA frequently showcases individual artists such as Renoir, Van Gogh, etc. and styles of art, such as the Folk Art Exhibit. Usually that artist's most familiar paintings are displayed. Amazingly, patrons come in throngs, waiting in lines for their turn to view these works. It is exciting to realize that the old masters still "pack a punch". Visiting MFA can be an all-day affair. It is home to an extensive collection of ancient art, from statuary, to jewelry. There is something for everyone!
It was definitely a fun experience. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is an art buff. Definitely worth the time and money. It is best to go on a Wednesday night, because admission is free.
I often visit the MET here in New York City and while this museum is not the MET, I was able to connect with the works in a way the MET does not allow; I actually stood in front of a Cezanne (up close!) and studied it without being bothered by security. I would recommend this museum over and over!
WOW! Incredible place for a single person, a group, a family, or a couple...you could soak in numerous cultures and thousands of years of history....very consuming and extensive...too much to see in even 2 hours! You need like 4-5 hours to really absorb what you're seeing. This is a must see... a bit pricey, but worth it.
Wow. That's all. Just wow. So may great paiontings by great artists-Monet, Rembrandt and others-and cool artifacts/special collections. I liked the Josef Sudek exhibit a lot! The only problem was that there was SO MUCH to see-it takes more than one day to see it all...and if you don't orient yourself with a map at the beginning, you might get lost (I did!) Very, very nice!
I worked here in college (ages ago), it has become sooo much better! Accessable, well represented artwise, has a lovely slide collection and great programs for the wee ones. The museum is easy access by the T from Cambridge and downtown Boston too! You can walk to the Prudential Center, Back Bay, Kenmore Square ...
The MET can overwhelm first timers. This is just right for a day in the artworld and is located near the Gardner museum if you're a fast cruiser!
Ive been many places and by far the MFA in Boston is the finest art museum. It compares to the Louvre in Paris. What a wonderful collection of fine art as well as modern art. We loved the Egyptian rooms, it was like actually being in Egypt. The building flowed nicely and kept us interested throughout. The great hall of art was fantastic
With a planetarium, an IMAX movie theater, and a two story Van de Graaf generator capable of producing 2.5 million

Tucked away on winding roads behind the Museum of Fine Arts , is a beautiful park of manicured lawns, bridges,
ponds and flower beds. In the summer, the gated Rose Garden explodes into aromatic pink, white, yellow and red. ...
At the beginning of the 20th Century, heiress and philanthropist Isabella Stewart Gardner built a home modeled after a 15th
century Venetian palace. Gardener was a great patroness of famous artists such as James Whistler and John Singer Sargent. ...
