This is a very nice museum with an extensive collection of Asian arts. I recommend 3-5 hours. A ticket allows you to go for two days.

The MC ESCHER installation is spectacular. Go see it before it leaves in May 2018. You can get up close and see the fine details. The rest of the museum is great, too. We spent an extra hour wandering around.

Wish we had more time to explore. Excellent permanent collection and lovely space, including a gorgeous atrium with a casual cafe that was stunning on a sunny day. Highly recommend.

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this

victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
