Enjoy the downstairs cafeteria, affordable and in good weather great courtyard to enjoy.
See the Egyptian exhibit. It's incredible.
Checking out Chihuly for another time. Definitely worth it, but try to avoid the crowds by coming during the week.
If you are looking for the most air conditioned place that is normally the most deserted, the Egyptian exhibit is for you.
There are several Monet collection on the second level. And a very interesting work by Picasso on the first level. And don't miss Pollock's work at the third.
Too many people on this free holiday admission day.
Explore the vast collection of American art, especially the colonial portraits by John Singleton Copley.
Dont go there to just buy large posters, they are not helpful to let you access the main big gift shop without paying 50 dollar entry fee for 2, even tough we explained that we had to catch a flight!
Parking in the garage is $24 if you are there 2 1/2 hours. Just a warning!
First Fridays is a great time to visit. There's a cocktail party in the Koch Gallery and the rest of the museum is pretty empty on a Friday night. Best of both worlds if you want to socialize or not.
The MFA is free everyday to almost all Boston College Students.
Instead the restaurant, try the courtyard cafetiria
Try not to go in the middle of the day in the middle of the week. The place is rife with tours full of ungrateful children and obnoxious adults on cell phones. Also, avoid the on-site restaurant as
The Michelangelo exhibit is small but fascinating and a reminder that genius means hard work.
Start your visit in the morning and wear comfortable shoes. There is so much to look at and you don't want to miss out on it. They have done an amazing job with that place.
Every first weekend of the month - free admission for Bank of America customers
The map isn't very useful for figuring out what you have and have not seen. Bring a pen and mark off cells you've walked through. It is a confusing maze.
The University Membership Program allows BU students to enter the Museum free of charge when they present their Terrier Card at any MFA ticket desk.
best musium ever
Wednesday night is key for the donation entrance fee.
My only complaint was the lack of activity. Art was great, we had a fun time.
Went to see the Dale Chihuly Glass exhibit here, what an amazing exhibit. I didn't have time to see any other exhibits but would love to come back again sometime.
open till 9:45pm on mon-fri
The Museum of Fine Art was amazing! - Jean (USA)
Best to avoid free museum day. The line is an hour+ long.
Don't bother going on the tours. I tried to go on one but the guide didn't even show up and the staff at the information desk were unhelpful.
If you are not a MFA member, expect rude treatment from the staff.
Great collection! Loved Millet exhibit.
