Specialties

The MFA is one of the most comprehensive art museums in the world. Experience art from ancient Egyptian to contemporary, special exhibitions, and innovative programs.

The centerpiece of the MFA’s expansion is a spectacular new wing for the Art of the Americas collection, which doubled the number of objects from the collection on view, including several large-scale masterpieces not displayed for decades.

History

Established in 1876.

The original MFA opened its doors to the public on July 4, 1876, the nation’s centennial. Built in Copley Square, the MFA was then home to 5,600 works of art. Over the next several years, the collection and number of visitors grew exponentially, and in 1909 the Museum moved to its current home on Huntington Avenue.
