It's a marvelous museum with exquisitely presented art collections. Some of the internal corridors are long and confusing so plan your route carefully and just focus on a few areas.

We really enjoyed our visit, unfortunately we didn't have much time to spend here. There's a cafeteria if you get tired and hungry. On Wednesdays after 4pm you can pay as you wish, very useful if you travel in a budget. ;)

Woman on a mission! Cunningham exhibit in the Herb Ritts gallery is small but mighty. You leave wishing you had known her. Matisse exhibit is vibrant. Appreciated the take on objects as "actors" in his work. Delightful! The Study of Thomas McKeller is Sargent's work...More

The museum is a bit confusing at first, but the map helps. Whoever put on the Matisse exhibit is a genius! We learned so much about the artist. His personal objects were on display along with the paintings. Perfection! We spent almost two hours on...More

Visited the Botticelli exhibition at the MFA last weekend. It was the first time Venus has left Europe, and the show is a unique collection of Renaissance masterpieces. This is also a wonderful example of why membership in the MFA is such a great investment...More
