Impressive art collections in Boston Museum of Fine Arts @ Boston, Massachusetts

Museum of Fine Arts is among the largest museum in the United States with almost half a million collections. The collections and exhibits range from the ancient to contemporary. The buildings themselves are gorgeous and worth seeing. You will need at least 3 hours to cover this huge museum. The display are well organized, diverse and neat. The admission fee to this museum is quite steep at USD25.00. I am quite lucky to reach Boston on wednesday. On wednesday night after 4.00pm, admission is by voluntary contribution (pay any amount that you wish).
