From an outstanding permanent collection (especially the Impressionists) to interesting temporary exhibits (from propaganda post cards to Ansel Adams and his successors), there is something for everyone here.

Don't leave Boston without at least one visit to this gem of a museum. Wonderful mummies, and the American collection is superb. If you get there before it closes, definitively visit the Winnie the Pooh exhibit.
