A Private Tour of the Modern and Contemporary Art at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston is home to one of the most impressive collections of modern and contemporary art in the country. Such a collection can be difficult to navigate, so ART SMART has created a tour designed specifically to help you see the art you’re most interested in. The tour, which is led by an experienced art historian, can be customized to fit the size, ages, and interests of you and your group. Let us know if there is a particular artist or movement you would like to learn more about and your guide will organize the tour route accordingly. We will explore both the permanent collections and the special exhibitions at the MFA.
