What You'll Get
Museums are an excellent way to discover the culture of the human race without having to fire up the broken-down time machine resting on cinder blocks in the front yard. Fortify your mind with bountiful works of art with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one general admission (a $20 value) to Museum of Fine Arts, Boston on Huntington Avenue. This Groupon expires three months from today, so get your peepers prepped for summer artgazing.
A comprehensive compendium of the world's art, the MFA lets guests take a gander at the earliest art of ancient Egypt, musical instruments from every celestial sphere, and the Impressionist art of Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Paul Gauguin, to name just a few 19th-century masters. Additionally, be sure to see the beautifully restored ceiling mural by John Singer Sargent above the palatial upper rotunda.
This summer, visit the museum on a Friday and stick around from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. for mfasummerfridays. Beginning on July 2 and running through the end of August, the soiree is free with your general-admission Groupon. Held amid the environs of the outdoor Calderwood Courtyard, mfasummerfridays feature live music and a chance to rub elbows and metacarpals with like-minded art lovers. A cash bar will serve up cocktails, an ideal complement to the buttery wane of late evening sunlight and nascent overhead stars. Come alone and meet new people against a soundtrack of global tunes, or cap off a museum visit with a friend or loved one.
Please redeem Groupon at ticket desk. The one-time museum re-entry usually offered with a full-price admission is not offered in conjunction with this Groupon.
- ...I think I first got hooked on museums the way many kids do, through the thrills and chills of Egyptian art. Why? For one thing, the Museum of Fine Arts had a ton of it, the largest collection of Egyptian Old Kingdom art outside Cairo. – Holland Cotter, New York Times
- The structure itself is simply fabulous, and you enter to immediately know that you are in the midst of something tremendous. The range of work and exhibits here is phenomenal. – MP B., Insider Pages
- I've been many times to the Museum of Fine Arts and a visit to this museum has never disappointed me. – sedum37, TripAdvisor
