Description

The museum contains Egyptian artifacts, Golden age Dutch paintings, French impressionist and post-expressionist works, 18th and 19th century art, Chinese painting, calligraphy and imperial art, Japanese pottery and woodblock prints, the Rockefeller collection of Native American work and much more. Toulouse Lautrec and the Stars of Paris is the current special exhibition.

The original MFA was founded in 1870 in Copley Square. It originally contained 5,000 works. In 1900 the museum moved to its current location on Huntington Avenue. The museum has expanded significantly since 2010 when it opened the American Wing with four levels of American Art from ancient to modern. In 2011 the west wing was transformed into the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art. New and improved galleries are always opening. The museum now contains nearly 500,000 works of art and opens it doors to more than one million visitors a year. You will have the afternoon free to explore and enjoy whatever you wish to see.
