Wonderful depth and breath of art. Could easily spend two days to see it all. It's a must see for anyone interested in art or history.

This was the one place in Boston I had to visit and it did not disappoint. A great collection of different types of Art, well laid out and organized. The staff with whom I interacted were great - very informed and happy to help. Just be told. You need to have purchased your ticket ahead of time online. Otherwise you will find yourself sitting out front doing it on your phone. Annoying but I got my ticket and it was worth it.

This museum has many wonderful pieces of art by multiple artists around the world. I particularly enjoyed the Egyptian art display as well as paintings by famous European artists. The building itself is interesting too; the juxtaposition of the older building and the more modern side, make for interesting architecture and very appealing altogether. I also enjoyed the large sculptures located outside the museum. The exhibits are well organized and neatly labeled. I was a bit annoyed by the "self-perceiving" bathroom signs, I didn't find that necessary. It's not necessary to bring a political agenda into a museum, considering they are visited by people of all walks of life.

I am writing to express my public health concern and overall dissatisfaction with my visit today. I appreciate the health check and timed entry but once inside the exhibit nearly no one was social distancing. Your safety personal were paying no attention at all to crowd control or one way movement through the exhibit. As a matter of fact, the exhibit was the only place in the Museum without arrows and prompts for where to stand and how to travel in one direction. People bunched up, stood too close, walked in circles, and were simply not following protocol. If people are expected to move through a supermarket in one way aisles, socially distanced, they certainly can in a museum! You absolutely sold an excessive number of tickets per one hour time block. My daughter is so distressed by the experience that she has scheduled a COVID test before she feels safe about seeing her boyfriend. We should have left, but we were inside before we realized how difficult and unsafe and anxiety provoking the experience would be. (Outside visitors were also having trouble following directions also, but we thought they were perhaps just excited.) I am 66 years old. I can only pray that what was supposed to be a lovely afternoon with my daughter was not a mistake. I recently renewed my membership because I trusted that the MFA had the best interest of its patrons foremost.

The MFA has reopened as of September 26, 2020. However, you need to purchase advance, timed entrance tickets. It is extremely difficult getting the information you need for discounted or free admissions under programs you qualify for. Worse, only a small part of the museum is actually open, at this point mainly the Art of the Americas and two temporary exhibits, a fact the MFA does not publicize before you shell out your $25 per person. Granted, capacity and operations are very difficult during the COVID pandemic. However pleasant browsing the nearly deserted galleries, I would suggest waiting to visit. MFA is not at all eager to welcome visitors at this point! As evidenced by a 2-3 checkpoint gauntlet to enter!
