Museum of Fine Arts, {CATEGORY}

One of the world's great art museums, the MFA works nonstop to become even more accessible and interesting. Every installation reflects a curatorial attitude that makes even those who go in with a feeling of obligation leave with a sense of discovery and wonder. That includes children, who can launch a scavenger hunt, admire the mummies, or participate in family-friendly programs scheduled year-round (and extra offerings during school vacations). Visitors in 2010 will want to check ahead for events and exhibitions related to the scheduled opening of the new American Wing in November. Among the numerous highlights of the magnificent collections are the Impressionist paintings (including one of the largest collections of Monets outside of Paris), Asian and Old Kingdom Egyptian collections, classical art, Buddhist temple, and medieval sculpture and tapestries. The works that you might find most familiar are paintings and sculpture by Americans and Europeans. Some favorites: Renoir's Dance at Bougival, Childe Hassam's Boston Common at Twilight, Gilbert Stuart's 1796 portrait of George Washington, John Singleton Copley's 1768 portrait of Paul Revere (which looks suspiciously like the Samuel Adams beer logo), a bronze casting of Edgar Degas's sculpture Little Dancer, John Singer Sargent's The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit, Gauguin's Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, and several Luminist masterpieces by Fitz Henry Lane. There are also outstanding holdings of prints, photographs, furnishings, and decorative arts, including the finest collection of Paul Revere silver in the world. None of this comes cheap: The MFA's adult admission fee (which covers two visits within 10 days) is among the highest in the country. A Boston CityPass or Go Boston Card is a bargain if you plan to visit enough of the other included attractions. To begin, pick up a floor plan at the information desk or take a free guided tour (weekdays except Mon holidays 10:30am-3pm, Wed 6:15pm, and Sat-Sun 11am-3pm). The I. M. Pei-designed West Wing (1981) contains the auditorium, three dining options - a cafeteria, a "sidewalk" cafe in the tree-lined atrium, and a fine-dining restaurant - and the excellent Museum Shop, which carries abundant gifts and souvenirs and a huge book selection.
