There are different sections with different levels. American, European, Contemporary, Asian, and Ancient. They have a variety of incredible works. A ticket will even get you in twice! We also received a discount because we went to the Gardner museum before this one.

Boston is rightly proud of its fine arts museum. From an outstanding permanent collection (especially the Impressionists) to interesting temporary exhibits (from propaganda post cards to Ansel Adams and his successors), there is something for everyone here. You can learn a lot just by walking...More

Don't leave Boston without at least one visit to this gem of a museum. Wonderful mummies, and the American collection is superb. If you get there before it closes, definitively visit the Winnie the Pooh exhibit.
