The MFA: a treasure trove of art

museum

From ancient Egypt to the Impressionists, the impressive collections of the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) span centuries and continents.

Located north of Fenway, not far from the exceptional Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts is a more classical style of museum. As one of the most important museums in the US, it certainly deserves a visit. Rich collections of Ancient Egyptian, Asian, European, and American art are yours to discover inside this giant building flanked by 19th-century colonnades. The Japanese collection is the largest in the world outside of Japan. The European collection, however, is the most impressive, with its many masterworks by Cézanne, Monet, Manet, Renoir, Van Gogh, and Bosch. Among the priceless pieces is Gauguin's Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? First-rate temporary exhibitions round out the visit.
