We are lucky in Boston to have such a rich and diverse roster of cultural treasures. Whether you’re looking lose yourself in some of the world’s most powerful art or you’re a family seeking to inspire the kids, Boston has something for you. COVID has certainly thrown us for a bit of a loop, but these amazing cultural institutions are starting to come back.
Planning your trip this fall? Here’s a list of what is open, opening, and what might be a bit different from your last visit:
If you only have time for one museum, this is it! You must reserve tickets ahead of time and galleries have limited capacity, but it will be well worth a slightly longer wait. The MFA re-opens September 26th with new hours Wed-Sun 10:00AM to 5:00PM. Be sure to check out the Black Histories, Black Futures exhibit on display through June of 2021.
Open Wed-Sun from 10:00AM – 5:00PM
Inspiring fun and learning for the whole family! Reserve tickets ahead of time and check out this video for updates on what is different in the COVID era at the MOS. Do your little ones love everything Toy Story and Pixar? Silly question! Check out the Science Behind Pixar exhibit.
Open Daily from 9:00AM – 5:00PM
When this opened year ago in the Seaport, it felt like the perfect yin to the MFA’s yang. Mind blowing contemporary art in a really cool building and location. Check out the Sterling Rugby exhibit through October.
Open Tue-Sun from 10:00AM – 5:00PM
Open but with reduced capacity for everybody’s safety. Order tickets online in advance and make sure to check out the Construction Zone exhibit. Your kids (and you!) will love it!
Open Wed-Sun with two time slots per day.
