A Family Friendly Private Tour of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston

Family time is precious, and we created Art Smart Family Adventures art tours to make the most of it. Our kid-paced and fun tours of art and culture through Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts (aka MFA) have something for everyone, no matter their age.

We will tailor your private MFA art museum tour to the ages and interests of your unique family. Along the way the children can play sleuthing and hunting games. Younger children can explore curiosities like Egyptian mummies and Greek mythical objects; for kids we’ll bring our treat-filled explorer bag to keep younger ones engaged. Teens often want to examine edgier and interactive works; so if they are along, we’ll head to contemporary art. Meanwhile, parents and grandparents can relax with one of our family-friendly art historians leading the way.
