Museum of Fine Arts

Admission included

Recently named one of the Top 25 Museums in the United States by TripAdvisor!

This museum houses nearly 450,000 works of art, from ancient Egyptian to contemporary, but the centerpiece is the spectacular wing for the Art of the Americas. Here, you'll be treated to large-scale masterpieces that haven't been displayed for decades.

Boston is a city of culture, higher-learning, innovation, music, and of course art. The city’s Museum of Fine Arts tastefully captures the creative spirit of this New England capitol, housing an impressive collection of international masterpieces and mainstays in the mediums of painting, sculpture, artisanal items, textiles, and musical instruments. The Boston MFA is also the proud home of the “Art of the Americas” wing, which features a whopping fifty-three galleries of art and artifacts from the Pre-Columbian era through the third quarter of the twentieth century. Visitors will see such well-known American pieces as The Sons of Liberty Bowl and The Passage of the Delaware.

The architecturally-grand MFA is located in Boston’s Fenway area—so named for its unusual geographic situation in a “fen” or marshy area filled with wild grasses and tall oats. It is surrounded by many of the city’s finest universities and colleges, with Northeastern University and Berklee College of Music in the immediate vicinity.
