Outstanding. My mother attended the Museum of Fine Arts in the 60s, it did wonders for her skills and experience as well her exposure to the world through art. She was an amazing artist and I treasure the abilities she has passed on to me. The Museum of Fine Arts has provided an excellent opportunity for many people past and present.

Take a break from wrapping presents to come look at our decorations! Visit "Gold and the Gods" and learn about ancient Nubian jewels like this "Winged Isis" pectoral. In her hands, the goddess holds hieroglyphic symbols meaning “the breath of life.” http://bit.ly/1st9Xpk

Our #MCM (#ManCrushMonday) goes out to "Postman Joseph Roulin" painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1888. Roulin was one of Van Gogh’s closest friends and favorite sitters. While painting this portrait, Van Gogh wrote to his brother, “I am now at work with another model...very like Socrates…A more interesting man than many people.” See this and more #VanGogh works at the MFA and help us figure out what caused a man to chop off his ear.

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.

#TriviaTuesday: Which future First Lady commissioned this New Years-inspired punch bowl design for her husband, the governor of New York? Hint: The design inspired a series of Jazz Age bowls that are regarded as icons of American Art Deco.

Pictured: “Punch bowl from the Jazz Bowl Series,” 1930, by Victor Shreckengost

While I was in Boston visiting my daughter and family and meeting my new granddaughter I was able to walk to the Museum. I really enjoyed seeing everything, The first thing that I saw was the quilt show. I actually went two days to see everything and I know I will want to go back and go through it again sometime. Two hours each day was just about all I could do. Wonderful.

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!

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.

This place has an amazing inventory of historical sites that are preserved and portrayed in a very elegant and unique manner that brings the content to life. It is just a walk from Northeastern University, and very central, boston wise. The give students a free pass if you show your stduent ID so deff worth the trip if you're around and interested in Art

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.

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.

The MFA is a MUST visit in Boston. Even as a local, going there is a lovely experience every time (although I try to go on free nights, as its a bit pricey unless you are a member). Visit the Sargents and the classics, yes, but make sure to take a peek at the newer contemporary art wing. I am a big fan of the ICA, so usually I would choose that over the MFA, but in recent years the staff has cultivated some beautiful modern art in the permanent collection. Take a visit to the new cafe as well for a coffee, champagne, or light snack.

I went there during the Bank of America Free Weekends. The exhibitions are included in the price of admission. The Jamie Wyeth exhibit was mind blowing. This museum requires multiple visits to see the phenomenal art. The museum had a stunning and expansive collation of European and American Art. They also had Asian, Contemporary, Arts of Ancient World but I could not see it all sadly. This museum is likely in the top five best museums in the USA.
