Join Home Base for a special tour of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The MFA has one of the most comprehensive collections in the Americas with 8,161 paintings and more than 450,000 works of art. Though that is too much to see on one tour, the visit will highlight some outstanding pieces and you are welcome to stay in the museum and visit more galleries after the tour. If you choose to stay, the museum has several options for lunch: New American Cafe in the museum’s glass courtyard, Taste in the contemporary wing for a light bite, and Garden Cafeteria in the family wing where you can bring a brown-bag lunch.
The event will be 11 am Saturday, March 11th at the Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02115. The museum is wheelchair accessible and wheelchairs/rollators are available free of charge at the museum. There are also accommodations available for those who are blind, have low vision, deaf, hard of hearing, or on the autism spectrum. The best way to get to the museum is on the Green Line E train to the Museum of Fine Arts stop, the Orange Line to the Ruggles stop, or the Commuter Rail to the Ruggles (Zone 1A) stop. By bus, take the 39 to Huntington Avenue at Ruggles or Louis Prang Street stops or take the 8, 19, 47, or CT2 buses to the Ruggles Street at Huntington Avenue stop. Parking at the MFA is on-street or in one of three parking lots: the Huntington Lot, the Fenway Lot, or the Museum Road Garage, all of which cost $20 for 2 hours or less or $26 for 3 hours or less. Tickets are limited for this event and Home Base will likely run a lottery. Register by Monday, February 27th at 5 pm for a chance to attend!
