Excellent art museum.  I saw the Showa sophistication: Japan in 1930s exhibition back in 2009 while I was visiting my friend.  It was excellent but very...

I love this place. The exhibits are set up in a way that makes complete sense! Every square inch of this place is covered in art and history! Tickets are very reasonably priced!

I finally got a chance to go experience the new wing at the MFA.  It was perhaps not as grand as I might have expected from all the hype, but there were enough pieces to certainly wow me.  In fact, in a smaller city, this would certainly be a full and impressive museum collection all on its own. There are pieces I could get lost away on for hours, and of course others I  could do without.  But that is what is nice about art, and interesting about attending with someone else. I love to see what other people are intrigued by. And sometimes they point out elements of a piece I never noticed myself and give me a new appreciation I would not otherwise have. We didn't get to spend too much time here as it was our ...
