We were in Boston for a weekend and it was National Museum day. The museum offered free tickets. We visited the Impressionists and the contemporary art rooms. The museum is large and features a courtyard dining area. Enjoy this Boston gem!

The Boston MFA is a world class fine art museum. Their permanent collection is superb and there’s usually a temporary exhibit of great importance on display. This museum is not to be missed.

One of the finest art museums in the country. There are a great many masterpieces here. The layout of the museum is wonderful. To see everything, it takes more than a morning or afternoon, and you will want to see everything, it's quite good.
