The MFA is a wonderful museum and so easy to get lost in, both figuratively and literally! Be ready to devote hours to this place as there is always something new around the corner. With both contemporary and historic work it's a great spot. The...More

We didn’t know there were so many treasures. A pity we could spend only one part of an afternoon. Flemish, Dutch, French and Spanish paintings and sculptures, not to talk about Asian and African art. A very rich museum!

This is a great museum to visit while in Boston. It is a place that you may want to plan visiting twice because it's really large and overwhelming. There are so many wonderful things to see here you certainly won't be disappointed.

Went in and was pleasantly blown away from the large selection. This museum is by far a must. A little pricey but you get your money’s worth as you can easily spend hours roaming its exhibits. Anything from instruments to 19th century French art,great place

loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign
