I always visit this museum when in Boston. Love their collection of Old Masters and Impressionist paintings. They have a fine collection of Monet that is not to be missed.

A beautiful collection; well worth seeing; the only downside is that it is very expensive. I feel it would be a hardship for many people because of the price.

I visited during the day and it seemed fine. If you use the ‘T’ it is less than that five minutes away from Museum of Fine Arts station on foot.
