Foursquare Tips

  • Boston: Things we love about the MFA: live concerts, Summer Fridays in Calderwood Courtyard, October Fashion Month aaaand WINESDAYS, where vistors can attend expert-led wine tastings. -IFC Viewer
  • With more than 450,000 works, the MFA can keep you busy for a lifetime of Wednesdays, when it's free from 4 to 9:45 p.m.
  • Local university student? Chances are your uni has already paid for you... Check the website for details. (it's free for Northeastern, MIT, Harvard, BU for sure)
  • You are granted free admission to the museum with the use of your husky card
  • You can't miss Thomas Sully's massive painting, "Passage of the Delaware", which depicts George Washington and his army crossing the Delaware River during the American Revolution.
  • You are given free admission to the MFA when you show your Simmons ID!
  • When you buy a ticket to the MFA, your paid admission allows you one free visit within 10 days. Return again instead of trying to tour the entire museum in one day! Green Guide Editor
  • Art junkies rejoice... The new Art of the Americas Wing is not to be missed displaying over 5,000 works from the Museums American collections.
  • I've heard of artists taking the piss, but Andy Warhol takes it to a whole new level
  • It's a very very huge place and they have so much to offer. They have the free admission tickets for ten days and you must use it. It's impossible to enjoy everything they offer at once.
  • Parking in the garage is $24 if you are there 2 1/2 hours. Just a warning!
  • Free admission on Wednesday nights!
  • Your ticket is valid for 10 days so if you are experiencing overload you can come back another day. A fantastic idea that more museums should employ
  • The employees are super friendly and helpful. You definitely need more than one day to see everything.
  • "Hippie Chic" runs through November 11 and tells the story of how "far out" clothing inspired a global revolution in attitude, sexuality and political participation. Admission is free with your BU ID
  • Um dos melhores museus que ja visitei..obras de Monet e Renoir...
  • There are several Monet collection on the second level. And a very interesting work by Picasso on the first level. And don't miss Pollock's work at the third.
  • The Michelangelo exhibit is small but fascinating and a reminder that genius means hard work.
  • In the Art of the Americas wing, don't miss the "Behind the Scenes" galleries, which have a very meta focus ("How does the museum decide what to display?"). They're almost hidden and, as such, empty.
  • Too many people on this free holiday admission day.
