Free Day at the MFA


Dear Boston Culture Lovers,

The MFA is free all weekend and Memorial Day Monday.

I know this is short notice, however the most fun that happens in life is spontaneous! Also, the weather is expected to bad this weekend, so what a great way to spend a rainy day, indoors in one of city's finest museums!

Lets meet in the lounge area of the Sharf Visitors Center on the first floor inside the museum at 1pm. 

There are a few couches next to the visitor help desk, lets meet there. The Sharf Visitor Center is adjacent to the New American Cafe.

I would like to spend 15 minutes or so before heading into the exhibits to talk and introduce ourselves.

Here is a link to a map for the first floor, (

I expect that there may be crowds and some prolonged waiting times standing in lines. It may not be that bad for this is a free, three day event, however I would like for you to prepare and plan ahead. Please leave give yourself extra time to travel and to stand in line.

If you are late, I can not guarantee that you will be able to find the group for this will be a roaming event. So please plan to arrive way early for this event so you do not miss the group.

I know we have some early birds, if people want to arrive much earlier and enjoy the museum on their own and then join the group at 1pm, I think that would be a great idea.

I ask that you only reserve "yes" if you are definitely attending. For these events to be successful and less stressful, I need to know who and how many people to expect.

I am looking forward to meeting you all.
