Had I known what these weeks would entail, I may have thought more seriously about filming my recent trip to the MFA. While I can't provide an interactive video of the MFA's collection, I can "walk" you through the path I took when I visited.
First, Romanticism and the Impressionists. These galleries lay directly on top of each other, near the Fenway entrance's main staircase.
The MFA's Impressionist collection is really quite impressive, with a whole room devoted to Monet.
Across the hallway, you'll find items from the Gothic, Byzantine, and Renaissance periods of Europe.
From here, you can walk past the main staircase and into a grand 'salon' style gallery that connects the Fenway and Huntington entrances.
Once on the Huntington side of the museum, you go further back in time and further afield from Europe. With the Greek, Roman, and Egyptian Collections all closed for Renovations, we opted for the Asian Art Wing.
A lucky surprise — the Asian Wing's conservation lab is visible to the public and a number of buddha statues were inside at various stages of restoration.
The Asian galleries lead you into the western section of the museum, filled with a rotating contemporary art exhibit.
Realizing we'd missed the American Art, we crossed the museum to see John Singleton Copley, Hudson River School landscapes, John Singer Sargent, and a particularly exciting new addition.
While not a part of the museum, we did make a stop at Tatte after — really the best way to end a museum day in Boston!
