Museum of Fine Arts

One of the world’s great art museums and one of the country’s oldest, Boston's MFA is a world-famous treasure house of art. Whether you’re interested in French impressionism, Asian ceramics, Egyptian mummies, or cutting-edge contemporary art, the MFA has it all under one roof.  There are more than 500 exhibits in the museum's extensive collection organized chronologically.  Represented are a superlative collection of Musical Instruments, Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, as well as Textile and Fashion Arts. Highlights also include superb 19th-century French paintings such as Renoir’s Dance at Bougival, one of the largest collections of works by Monet found outside of France, and Egyptian and Japanese collections that are unrivalled anywhere in North America.

Wednesday–Friday, 10:00 am–5:00 pm

Closed: New Year’s Day, Patriot’s Day, July 4, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

Because of limited parking, especially during special exhibitions, you are encouraged  to take advantage of Boston's public transportation system, the
MBTA, known by natives as the "T."

The Museum is easily accessible by the T, from the Green E Line Museum stop, or the Orange Line Ruggles stop.
