Museum of Fine Arts


One of the most comprehensive art museums in the world and the fourth largest museums in the United States; the collection encompasses nearly 500,000 works of art. More than one million visitors arrive each year to experience art from ancient Egyptian to contemporary, special exhibitions, and innovative educational programs.

The Museum has undergone significant expansion and change: 2010 marked the opening of the Art of the Americas Wing, with four levels of American art from ancient to modern. In 2011, the west wing of the Museum was transformed into the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art, with new galleries for contemporary art and social and learning spaces. Improved and new galleries for European, Asian, and African art have opened through 2013, and more to come.
