Museum of Fine Arts – Boston

Saturday, 3 November 2012

I managed to depart Boston just before Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast of the USA. I was in Boston for the opening of the big new Hostelling International Boston Hostel and most of my brief stay in the city was tied up with that.


Museum of Fine ArtsI did get to walk around the city, stroll Boston Common and spend a few hours in the very fine Museum of Fine Arts. Very expensive as well with a US$25 admission charge – a few days later I was in the National Gallery of London where the entry charge is zilch, it’s free (although donations are certainly appreciated). The Boston Museum has a wonderfully varied collection from ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman works right up to very modern art. Like I Dreamed I Could Fly by Jonathan Borofsky in the Eunice and Julian Cohen Galleria. ►
