Museum of Fine Arts
Within these neoclassical walls, art-lovers can move through 10 millennia of artistic masterworks, ranging from Etruscan pottery to prints by Roy Lichtenstein. The Museum of Fine Arts can be a bit overwhelming (in the best way, of course), so pace yourself accordingly by taking time to stop at one of their four cafes for a cappuccino and a moment of meditation. The newest addition here is the 2010 Art of the Americas wing, which is larger than the Guggenheim. Here you’ll get a chance to see Paul Revere’s silver, portraits by Boston’s own John Singer Sargent, and Connecticut Valley furniture of ample proportions.
