Unfortunately I caught this between shows so there were just a few images up from the last show. The visit was sort of impacted by the staff person being kind of dismissive and unfriendly. I am a new member of the museum and was treated...More

Visited Boston for Valentine's Day and this was a must do on our trip. I'm a hobby photographer and always wanted to visit this place. We obviously don't know our way around Boston so it was kind of hard to find even with GPS directions,...More

Finally made it to the Griffin and really enjoyed it. I've come to like small museums as I often find the larger ones quite overwhelming. Check to see what the current exhibit is (we saw the Patrick Nagatani exhibit, which will soon be gone, and...More
