To enjoy the MFA is to allow yourself to be immersed in another time and place. From the pastels to the artifacts, the sculptures to the masters. The size and scope of the rooms allows you to truly appreciate the art in its best light....More

Went to see the pastels and Rothko exhibits - both on at least until the end of the year. Small but extremely well curated, great descriptions means audio guides weren’t necessary. Go early especially on a weekend - it gets quite crowded in the afternoon.

The MFA is very manageable. Exhibits are big enough to capture what you want to see, but small enough to move on quickly if you're with a group that is just browsing. Exhibits move in/out frequently so it's never completely the same. From quirky (Murakami...More

loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this

victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
