If #Picasso could create 50,000 works throughout his career, just think of how much you could accomplish today! Stop by “Pairing Picasso” for some extra #MondayMotivation.

Pictured: “Head of a Woman,” 1952, Private Collection.

The Hebrew inscription at the center of this 18th-century Dutch plate reads, "Pesach," or #Passover. The eight-day festival begins at sundown tonight.

“Electric word, life: it means forever and that’s a mighty long time.” In appreciation of the prodigiously talented, genre-defying musical artist, Herb Ritts’ 1991 photograph “Prince (Hat with Chains)” is now on view in our Sharf Visitor Center.

Lothar Osterburg uses brown ink in "Vaulted Trailer Park" (2010) to make the image resemble century-old photographs, eerily gesturing toward the dystopian future that awaits us.

Visit "Ruined: When Cities Fall" to see more views of crumbling civilizations both imagined and real.

Well can't explain, the whole place is grand, they have almost everything from ancient history to modern history. The prices are great too. If your a student please take your time to head there and have a great time. It's free that is why. *a great place to bring a date

An incredible collection of art in downtown Boston that gives the better known Met in New York a run for its money. Expansive and well-curated, this museum will occupy the entirety of your day if you're an art fan. Definitely a must-see in Boston.

A must see if you're in Boston. The American Art Wing is so worth a visit. An unmatched collection of John Singleton Copley's paintings. Eat outside in the courtyard of the cafeteria in season.

Great museum. There is so much to see. Could easily spend a whole day there and not see it all. Only negative is the ticket price.

Loved it. It's a really nice and peaceful place, there's a lot to see. Admission is free on Wednesdays (after 4:00pm I think), so this is a great opportunity for everyone to admire fine arts. One afternoon might not be enough to see everything on this museum so it's definitely worth coming back.

Huge art museum with great atmosphere and one of the best selections of art around available. Free to NEU students and the MFA holds events for those in the public that love art. Great place to walk around and think as well I hear.

Beautiful museum with tons of different time periods, locations, styles, and manners of presentation. The architecture is tastefully selected/modified to accent the pieces being shown, and/or sections are chosen to go smoothly with the building aesthetics. Complimentary coat-check that doesn't accept tips, though they tend to be very slow.

Why do you have such hostile museum guards? I was feeling very faint from pregnancy and tried to rest on the ground. A guard came up to me to tell me to get up. Oh my, I almost passed out. I don't need to have a gestapo rob my baby of oxygen. How amazingly unethical!
