  • Lovely medium sized well organized museum. Art and history ranging from 2000bc to modern day, photography exhibit is in need of more than 7 pictures but they rotate it every 12 weeks, so there is great reason to return. Saw the star wars exhibit was amazing and worth every penny, staff was professional and knowledgeable. Amazing place with a vast array of useful and amazing art.
  • Very worthwhile visiting. Eclectic collection of paintings, sculpture, and other types of art from many time periods and countries. While the collection is limited in size, many items are first rate. Parking is hard to come by near the museum, especially on weekends. Special exhibitions add to the diversity. The grounds, building and collection are well kept and the staff is helpful. There several nearby restaurants if you want to have lunch after your visit.
  • I'm only posting a few pics because I don't want to show too much. Even though I am not a huge Star Wars fan, I was incredibly impressed with the costume display! It runs until April 1st, so there is still time to see it. If you are a huge Star Wars fan, I highly recommend it!
  • Fantastic day. Knowledgeable staff and wonderful art. We went for the special Star Wars costumes and really enjoyed the way they were displayed.
  • We went for the Star Wars: Power of the Costume exhibit they are having through 4/1. While pricey for nonmembers at $25 for adults, it was enjoyable and we got through it in under 2.5 hours. It was pretty neat to see the actual costumes used in all the films. We extended our stay and hit up the MFA Cafe for lunch. If that's not your speed, there a numerous eateries in the area with one of the best being Bella Brava. You'll want to put your name in early there because there's usually a wait. Parking is usually a challenge however you can valet at the museum for $10 and as long as you come back for your keys before 5, you can leave it there until you're ready to leave the area which is chock full of shops and restaurants to visit.
