A fine and comprehensive collection, with many gems from Europe and the Revolutionary period in USA. The new wing and its American art is well worth a visit.

The MFA is a wonderful museum and so easy to get lost in, both figuratively and literally! Be ready to devote hours to this place as there is always something new around the corner. With both contemporary and historic work it's a great spot. The...More

We didn’t know there were so many treasures. A pity we could spend only one part of an afternoon. Flemish, Dutch, French and Spanish paintings and sculptures, not to talk about Asian and African art. A very rich museum!

This is a great museum to visit while in Boston. It is a place that you may want to plan visiting twice because it's really large and overwhelming. There are so many wonderful things to see here you certainly won't be disappointed.

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign
is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the
city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports
