Boston's oldest cultural institution, Museum of Fine Arts is noted for its collection of French Impressionist paintings, including more works by Monet than any other museum or gallery outside of Paris. The museum also houses a vast collection of Egyptian, ancient Greek, and Roman art. The galleries displaying American works include paintings of famous historical figures, such as George Washington, Samuel Adams, and Paul Revere. In addition to works by the great European artists Gauguin, Renoir, Degas, and van Gogh, you can also see examples of some of the finest works produced by Americans John Singleton Copley, Winslow Homer, and John Singer Sargent. Be sure to leave a little time for exhibits of medieval sculpture and tapestries, as well as for displays of Chinese calligraphy and Japanese pottery.

  • Huge place but we majored on the Turner show which was excellent and well worth a visit, very large so we did not have time to explore the rest

  • This doesn't need another 5 star review but I feel like I want to give it one. The things you see in here feel endless and amazing. I won't drag on, you should just go check it out. The real value is if you can get a membership if you live locally. The cheaper parking and free tickets to special exhibitions are amazing. For sure some of the best money I've ever spent.
  • Saw the African art exhibit and we are card carrying members. Just beautiful at every turn. So many great exhibits. Many of the rooms take your breath away before you even get to each individual piece. We had an amazing afternoon exploring. Easy to get to on the T or by car and plenty of things to keep you busy for a while.
