Will see Lamborghini and Porsche cars in front of this chic spot. Museum does have valet parking. A little bit of each collection is scattered on each level of museum. Quality is good but not as comprehensive as counterparts in London, NYC, Chicago etc.

Monet has his own room!!!! The ambience is magnificent. Note there’s a cool old cigarette machine on the second floor that dispenses miniature art made from artists around the country. Sooooo cool! Nice add to the space. Great works there😌

MFA has the largest collection of French Impressionist paintings outside of France. I could have spent the entire day in that portion off the museum. Their American Art collection is wonderful, too. The museum is well designed and it was easy to find the collections...More

Took two tours, back to back. Two different guides. Each guide was excellent. I could have taken more tours all day but the two teenage boys with us were done!

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
