The Museum of Fine Arts is Boston’s oldest, largest and best-known art institution, which is home to one of the world’s most comprehensive art collections. Here, you will find Impressionist paintings, art from Europe, Africa, and Asia, Egyptian collections, a Greek and Roman sculpture gallery and early American art. You could spend an entire day here exploring everything the museum has to offer.
When the museum opened in 1876, there were just 5,600 works of art. Today, more than one million visitors come here to view the collection that boasts nearly 450,000 pieces. Come and visit a special exhibit, listen to a gallery talk, meet an artist and learn some of their unique techniques, watch a film, take in a concert, or take a self-guided audio tour of the property.
Saturdays and Sundays are popular for the champagne brunch at the fine dining upstairs restaurant known as Bravo, which also features live entertainment. It is also open for dinner Wednesday through Friday evenings. The museum also offers reduced tickets for students and seniors.
