Music venues

Art Museum
“One of the most highly regarded museums in the world, the massive Museum of Fine Arts boasts about half a million objects spanning the centuries from ancient Egypt to present-day artwork. The museum officially opened its doors in 1876, with a little over 5,500 objects. What a difference a century-plus makes! It’s best to make a game plan of what you want to see because tackling the museum in a few hours, or even a day, is impossible. Highlights include more than 70 works by John Singleton Copley and major paintings by Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent and Edward Hopper. Paintings aren’t your thing? African masks, Native American pottery, mummies, musical instruments, and practically any other media you can think of have a home at the museum. Daily free one-hour guided tours give a good overview.”
