  • I used to only go during Open House events, but in late 2017 I finally decided to become a proper member so I can visit anytime I want. I have a special fondness for the Impressionists section and the adjacent Monet Gallery is a must see. Not to mention the works of Copley and John Singer Sargent in the Art of the Americas wing. There's a quiet place to sit and enjoy the art. For dining, I only do the Garden Cafeteria, but it's especially good for families as it always has enough variety to ensure you'll find something you like and at a reasonable price. Even living here in Boston, there's nothing like spending a few hours exploring the MFA.

  • Depending on who you are and what you like, this could be really awesome time. Great collections of new and old, as well as some awesome installments in common areas. Our favorites include the Monet collection along with other impressionists; the Picasso and Pollock room and other modern artists like O'Keeffe, Done, etc; and the ancient Greek and Egyptian artifacts. The Japanese garden is also awesome, weather permitting. Membership is very enticing here, but I haven't taken the plunge, yet, so I can't speak to it.

  • The exhibition was very interesting. I really enjoyed how the artist took his inspiration from ancient Japanese art. Since my son and daughter have shown interest in art this was a great exhibit to bring them to. Never a dull moment as the kids spend all the time taking pictures and selfie to use as part of their drawing inspiration back at home. If you are thinking of going, don’t think any more just get there...

  • I've been there before and had a great time. This awful. Too many people, staff was downright rude! No one listened to our experience even when we told security! I'll NEVER go there again! The only people who were nice where the women in coat check! It was horrible! I went with an ART student! NEVER again!

  • Admission is pay what you can on Wednesday nights! Love keeping my eyes peeled for new exhibits! The latest Japanese one that ended in Dec. 2017 was really cool! Always love coming to the MFA, great place to recharge and get the juices flowing. You can sometimes spot artists painting or drawing in a corner too... would be a cool part of a scavenger hunt.
