There's no better ‪#‎WellnessWednesday‬ inspiration than a room full of Greek and Roman statues—the definition of chiseled.

#‎TriviaTuesday‬: This “Vessel in the Form of a Hare” is believed to be the oldest work in our collection. Can you guess how old it is? Hint: It’s wicked old.

Mark your calendar for April 24-27! Not only are we hosting Art in Bloom—our annual festival of art and flowers—we're also re-opening Tenshin-en, our Japanese Garden, which fittingly translates to “Garden of the Heart of Heaven.” http://bit.ly/artinbloom

Are you a bigger New England Patriots fan than #SamAdams? Not only is he the oldest card carrying member of #PatriotsNation, but he’s so excited for #SuperBowlXLIX that he’s been wearing this all week.

Helen Burnham, curator of our new exhibition “Leonardo da Vinci and the Idea of Beauty,” has some tips to help you recognize ‪#‎daVinci‬’s drawing style. “Leonardo was left-handed, meaning his strokes tend to face up and to the left.” Of the two drawings pictured here, can you identify which one is by Leonardo?

This museum has no leadership. The exhibit ‘Looking East’ was there after stops in Tokyo, Nagoya, and Kyoto. Included in the exhibit were kimonos – lent by a Japanese company - that were replicas of the one in Monet’s ‘La Japonaise’. This was a thoughtful gesture by the Japanese that gave Americans a chance to get a hands on experience sharing in the beautiful Japanese culture. But the museum insulted the Japanese after their generous offer by cancelling the try-on event because a handful of non-Japanese protested. The MFA also monitored ‘social media’. As if a handful of protesters and the usual nuts in the blogosphere should decide what the rest of us get to see and do. And as if these non-Japanese know what is offensive to the Japanese better than the Japanese do. If the MIA had looked into exactly who these protesters were, they would have seen that they’re sociopathic. The perpetually-aggrieved type who define themselves by who they hate. They jump on any and every counter-culture cause and use it as a pretense to vent their deep rooted hatreds – which in this case, appeared to be white people, men, and the Japanese. Unbelievable that the MIA would disregard the Japanese and everyone else and cave to a few freaks.

Saw the Hokusau show Sunday...its a knock out, very impressive, would do it again. We walked out on the Da Vinci: Suggest you cut way down on number of viewers in the rooms straining to see the small drawings. But MFA, you're looking world class with these exhibits. Bob O'Rourke

Had a fantastic time revisiting this museum, this time with someone who actually understands art. The buildings themselves are absolutely stunning, and they have very good food for a museum as well. I wouldn't miss this if you're in the city.

5 STARS for the VARIETY OF ART on display Superb selection of classics & modern art pieces. 3 STARS for the EASE OF USE to find individual art pieces. I asked for directions, multiple times, with my friend. Still, neither of us could locate the painting we came to view. Perhaps, they could color code the MFA like the MBTA & MGH? HINT: WED NIGHT is always "pay what you want" at the MFA. If you're strapped for cash, but still want to expand your mind, Wednesday night allows you entrance to the MFA for...$1.00! Since we are all so lucky to have access to this rich art history, I encourage everyone to pay more than that, if and when they can. The MFA also offers "FREE MUSEUM DAY" several times a year. I believe one of these free days is Memorial Day every year.

Superb as always. One of the great fine art museums in United States. American wing, 3 floors, is excellent. John Singer Sargent rooms are the best any where.

I am a total art lover, so it goes without saying that I love the MFA, especially the Impressionist wing. The first time I'd gone was on a school trip when I was 8, and I just loved the mummy exhibit and ancient art sculptures. I've enjoyed going back ever since. Though the MFA can seem intimidating and easy to get lost in, the volunteers are very friendly, and some will even walk part of the way with you to the exhibits you want to see. On a whim, my mother-in-law and I went on a museum tour (highlights of the European collection), which neither of us had done before though we'd both been to the MFA many times. We had Lydia (or it may have been Linda) as our tour guide, and she was great! Not only was she informative, but she did a great job at injecting life and humor into some of the pieces we saw. The MFA also offers in-person tours in French and Spanish for those who want the tour experience but speak a language other than English. There are also a few cafes/restaurants inside the MFA, which makes it easy to take a tea/coffee break, and the gift shops have every piece of merchandise imaginable to man. I'm always coming back here for special exhibits or to revisit existing ones--there's always something new that I missed or didn't have the time to check out before.

The MFA is a gorgeous, large museum that hosts many fun, free events. Ever Wednesday there is an art teacher and live model that poses, so you can sketch for free in the galleries. It rotates to a new gallery each week. There are also scavenger hunts, college nights with free gelato and live music, and many other great ways to enjoy the art amid other activities. There is also a cafe in the middle with giant glass windows so you can enjoy the outside, while you're having a cup of tea and checking out the beautiful glass sculpture also located in that courtyard.

I really enjoyed this museum. We decided to become members after looking at all the benefits and the the great programming of special exhibitions they have coming up later this year. We loved the Goya special exhibition, and are looking forward to DaVinci later this year. The permanent collections are excellent as well. I love the combination of so many styles of art in one museum, as well as the layout by period and region. Some gems include the Impressionist room's Monet and Van Gogh pieces, John Singer Sergants' designs and pieces custom made for the museum, Paul Revere's silversmithing, and Goya's print series. I also really enjoyed the mirrored glass piece in the modern wing. They also have some really great unique items in the gift shops. Looking forward to returning to see more of the permanent collections!
