    Its got RODIN and John Sargent yes its time for culture.

    Both are my favourites and many more artists can be found here,
    there must be something here you like. And yes perhaps like me lots to bore you too.

    Its entry is included with your Boston Pass.

    TIP Isabella Stewart Gallery can be found nearby visit it at the same time while your here, its great too.

    Museum of Fine Arts - Boston

    The Museum of Fine Arts, holds an impressive collection of art and treasures from all corners of the globe. Not to be missed are the Egyptian collection and the French Impressionist paintings. Additionally the interior of the museum in and of itself is stunning and worth the price of admission.

    The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has tons of collections from around the world. Its a must see if you have a few days in Boston. Be prepared to spend the entire day in there if you want to see everything. We were there for about 4 hours and only saw 1/3 of the gallery.

    Museum of Fine Arts- Boston

    The Museum of Fine Arts is an incredible place to stop by in Boston on a rainy day. The collection is surprisingly large. There are plenty of different collections to see and exhibits change all the time. There are lots of places to eat for all different price ranges and be sure to check out the museum gift shop. There is also a theatre in the museum which shows different movies each month. I highly reccomend a visit to this museum.

    Boston Museum of fine arts

    This is a superb museum. They have a lot of diverse collections. They have a really nice asian art section, european paintings, american art and antique art. They have 3 different restaurants depending of the size of your wallet.
    You should choose the sections you want to see first because there is a lot to see.

    Don't forget the Gauguin Exposition until June 20th! A beauty!

    The Museum of Fine Arts is a very enjoyable experience which should keep the attention of ALL family members. My children used to love the Egyptian section. The Impressionists were also a favorite--they love to see how the dots give way to a beautiful picture when you step back.
    Don't leave without experiencing the gift shop. It can be a good source for unusual gifts--we bought a Monet poster as a College graduation gift for their Aunt...it was a most unusual & appreciated gift!
