The Contenders

11 Museum of Fine Arts - Boston

Wonderful special exhibitions, especially ripe with Impressionists. Most unexpected was the Guitar exhibition narrated by James Taylor and featured guitars and their sounds from centuries ago up to Hendrix as well as other celebs. Fun and illuminating. - mgenet

I once lived near Boston and I've been to all of the special exibitions and I've seen Claude Monets lily pads and Whistlers mother and all kinds of other awesome stuff! I've probably been there 9 or 10 times! - moose4life19
