Museum of Fine Arts

Nominated for: BEST Museum

Museum of Fine Arts 465 Huntington Avenue Boston MA (617) 267-9300

The original MFA opened its doors to the public on July 4, 1876, the nation's centennial. Built in Copley Square, the MFA was then home to 5,600 works of art. Over the next several years, the collection and number of visitors grew exponentially, and in 1909 the Museum moved to its current home on Huntington Avenue.

Today the MFA is one of the most comprehensive art museums in the world; the collection encompasses nearly 450,000 works of art. We welcome more than one million visitors each year to experience art from ancient Egyptian to contemporary, special exhibitions, and innovative educational programs.

Wonderful to go in the spring for Art in Bloom! Nice to chill out in the courtyard after seeing the exhibits. The Quilts Exhibit is organized so well, it pops!
