The Museum Of Fine Arts, Boston Reviews - Write a Review
Huge offering of art. You can even see some artist sketching real life models. It has free access on Wednesday and it is also open till late.( 9pm) if I remember well. Public restrooms available and wheelchair friendly. It is a huge place so it is better to visit it on different times in order to digest all it has to offer! I'll definitely go back!
This is a lovely museum. So much to look at. The parking cost combined with the price of admission can be a bit of a stretch for those on a budget. It's worth it though. The cafeteria has good food for a reasonable price and the outdoor seating is idyllic in the summer. The other higher end restaurants are also good and a lovely experience. Great gift shop.
World class museum with vast collection of art and antiquities. Big highlight for the permanent Egyptian exposition. Not the place to see in a hurry, as this can easily take 3-5 hours. It is connected to the green line, therefore easily accessible with public transportation. I'd say it's the only memorable museum if you're a tourist looking for some cultural experience while in Boston.
The museum has a good collection of art from various periods and styles. Wednesday after 4pm the entrance fee is by donation. They do ask you how much you want to donate at the door in their attempt to extract the highest donation possible. The museum is quite spacious but there is seating scattered throughout to take a rest.
I've been going to the MFA for over 50 years. You'd think I'd have seen it all, the classics, the periods, the civilizations. In the countless treks, surprise has always been a factor. Lately, I've found myself noticing other patrons and their reactions. It reminds me of my first encounter when our friendship was formed. For the novice, I would suggest a tour. Though rambling room to room has its merits. Do yourself a favor. Take the time. You won't regret it. I never have.
