  • This the place to be if your looking for contemporary art at Boston. It's not too big so you can perfectly see it all in about 2 to 3 hours. Este es el lugar al que tienes que ir si buscas arte contem...  more »
  • I enjoyed the museum, family found it a little too modern for them. Happened to hit the free Thursday night, so it was a great bargain!!  more »
  • The exhibition was interesting and we could ask for some explanation. Some time you need explanation to contemporary art :) Take a look at the harbor, what a scenery.  more »

  • Had a great time there. I especially like their Pop up talks where staff members there engage visitors for a 15 min conversation about a selected piece of art. It was a great way to learn more about an art piece, and more engaging than a regular tour. Would definitely go back!
  • I guess this is the kind of museum you build when all the old masters have already had dibs called on them. And it's almost always brilliant. Even if the exhibits don't interest, one could sit for hours in the long room overlooking the harbour.
  • Saw the wonderful Nari Ward exhibit. Building is beautiful and modern inside, but I was expecting the space to have more exhibits, especially paying $15 to get in. It seemed like there was only a full exhibit on the 4th floor.
  • Two stars for being free on Memorial Day but contemporary art is not a taste I have acquired. Your mileage may vary.
  • This museum was fantastic. The admission was reasonable and the galleries were breathtaking. There were a lot of thought provoking and beautiful pieces of art. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the building is beautiful and well-made. There are a lot of cool rooms, and even cooler exhibits. I would go again!
