It's a very good museum. Not the best fine arts museum in the country by any means, but it's a great time.

Spent the morning and really enjoyed it. The museum guide suggested a series of highlights, which were excellent. The Monet selection is gorgeous, as were the paintings by Sargent. Really broad range of items - ancient Egypt right through the ages. Better than expected

loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
