It's an absolutely wonderful massive collection. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Spend your day wandering. Eat at their little Cafe and then wander more. We'll be back for the Van Gogh exhibit this spring.

Just saw Tudor to Windsor exhibit. Wonderful!!! The MFA Cafe is really a wonderful gem. Had curried egg salad sandwich and clear broth potato soup. $7.50 for combo. Also has eggs benedict and shrimp and grits. Brunch is amazing.

Had only 1 hour to spend. European collections cover a wide time period. Late Manet picture of Japanese Garden was new to me. Time was well spent to get a first impression.

There's not too many options to keep the kids entertained, in Houston. This is one of the best and the kids can spend a long time here. Like me, if you have an extra day to spend with kids, and are struggling to look for...More
