Museum of Fine Arts Boston

The museum is in the Northeastern University area in Boston.

I visited The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston last week and it is now on my list of favorite museums, up there with MOMA in New York and the New Orleans Museum of Art, you know, museums that I will always visit when I am in those cities.

The Boston museum is huge, I got lost and it took me a half hour to find my way out! It’s the fourth largest museum in the US with over 450,000 works of art.

There is so much there that it gets overwhelming. You go from huge ancient Egyptian artifacts to French impressionists to Chinese paintings. From King Menkaura and his queen from 2472 BC to Paul Gauguin in 1897 and Renoir in 1883.
