Founded in 1870, the Museum of Fine Arts -whose globe-spanning collection encompasses more than 500,000 objects - continues to grow and innovate. Of particular note is the collection of American art, including Paul Revere’s Liberty Bowl and paintings by John Singleton Copley; the Egyptian collection, much of which was acquired through excavations in conjunction with Harvard University; the Japanese collection (the first in America, and one of the finest in the country); and the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist sections, including one of the largest collections of Monet's work outside Paris. An array of performances and special events attract culture hounds of all ages.
