What People Are Asking
A Beyond an ordinary museum, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts delivers more than you can possibly absorb in a single visit. Which is why we recommend spending a few days exploring the hundreds of galleries at your disposal. But if time is of the essence, there are a few key things you cannot miss. Begin in ancient times with the highlight of our Egyptial artifact collection, the coffin of Nes-mut-aat-neru who died in 700 BC. Then head over to the Art of the Americas Wing and enjoy a gallery filled with John Singer Sargent portraits, including the iconic The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit, an intriguing tribute to the four vivacious daughters of the painter's friends. And, of course, no visit is complete without a visit to the Impressionists Gallery, where a robust collection of works by Monet and Rodin introduces you to the world of late-19th-century French art.
