I love museums and have been to many, and Boston's Museum of Fine Arts may very well b may favorite. The structure itself is simply fabulous, and you enter to immediately know that you are in the midst of something tremendous. The range of work and exhibits here is phenomenal. There is certainly something to please just about everyone. Among my favorites and a draw that is consistently popular are a number of original works by Monet. There are special rates available for different organizations and free admission for students. Anyone in Boston is missing out not to visit this great museum.

When I was a grad student a couple of years ago at Northeastern I would step across the street (literally) to the MFA on Wed nights (voluntary pay for admission). Been there at least 50 times. The Japanese swords and Egyptian artifacts are the best in the world outside of their native countries. The MFA sponsored several early 1900s digs in Egypt. Been around the globe since then and the masters paintings will rival any collection in the world such as the Louvre and Hermitage. Early america displays will blow your mind if your are into that period. This museum is massive, would say it took a solid 12 hours for the first once through. Parking is right next to building or street. And then you still want to come back....

Pros: Ambiance, collection, architecture

Cons: Huge building, street traffic

The admission price is pretty expensive, as are the food prices in the restaurant, but this is to be expected with a world class museum. Beyond fascinating are the asian arts and egyptian artifacts. This museum has such an extensive impressionist collection, that the entire Monet exhibit was uprooted to Las Vegas and featured in the Bellagio art gallery for almost a year. Spectacular! The best part? It is free for students any day of the week!

Maybe it's because this is the first art museum I went to as a kid, but I love the MFA. I've been going there off and on for over 15 years now, and I always find something new to enthrall me. The layout of the museum is easy to comprehend and follow, even if you don't have a map with you. No matter what interests you -- Impressionist art, Paul Revere's silver, Greek sculpture -- you're going to find something you love at the MFA. Even the bookstores, gift shops and restaurants are good!

The collection at the MFA is astounding - I didn't think that such a variety of pieces could be found right in the heart of back bay, but there it it! There's a great impressionist room covered with Monet's and Renoir's work, and a wonderful Asian Art section that I always wander into (the Buddhist temple room is my favorite!)

The MFA's a wonderful place to wander through for an afternoon. Maybe you won't see all of it (I spent four hours there last weekend and certainly didn't), but it's great to explore and see what's what and escape the mundane outside world. The Asian exhibits are top-notch, including a wonderful mock Japanese Buddhist shrine, designed to give a sense of how the Buddhist statues would look in the real world. When you consider that the $15 price of admission buys you two trips within 30 days, it's even a real steal - or a super steal, when the $15 becomes a variable contribution on Wednesday nights.

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Crowded, Hard to park

Pick the category that you want to see. You can't do the Museum of Fine Arts in a day. Great for schools studying Greek and/or Egyptian history.

I have been to the MFA many times, and would go many more. The collection is great, and the special exhibits never cease to amaze me. Although the special exhibits are entirely too crowded and something needs to be done about that. Its makes it very hard to see the paintings and enjoy them when there are large crowds all trying to veiw the same painting.

The MFA is where I go to relax. The atmosphere is calm and not pretentious. The exhibits, cafes, and store are all perfect.

The MFA is one of Boston's greatest treasures! It is a great place to go for a date, because whatever you see there, you can be sure that it will promote discussion -- and you can learn a lot about another person by their response to art! Also, the cafe is a great place to go for lunch, even if you don't feel like going to any exhibits. And the best cheap date in town is to go down to the cafeteria (lower level), get a great lunch and sit outside if weather permits.

Pros: art promotes discussi, great place to eat, challenges your brain

Cons: free night is crowded

The MFA is simply one of the most prestigious art museums in the world. There are plenty of other art museums in Boston which are also good too, but I find the MFA Boston holds the greatest exhibits and masterpiece works out of all.
