Museum of Fine Arts

With a collection of 450,000 objects, The Museum of Fine Arts owns some of the most rare and important artistic treasures in the world. At every turn, you’ll find breathtaking works of art, from masters of American painting to the icons of Impressionism, from exquisite Asian scrolls to Egyptian mummies. Did you know Fairmont Copley Plaza was built on the original site of the Museum of Fine Arts? When their collection outgrew the smaller space, the MFA chose to build a new, larger museum ten minutes west.
