Museum of Fine Arts, Boston


I came to where I wanted to come for a long time; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Yes, I go to Boston almost every week and why didn't I come this museum sooner? I can explain. Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) offers free admission after 4pm on Wednesday and, although I have been in Boston a lot, I have hardly ever been in Boston on Wednesday and even if I were in Boston on Wednesday which is very rare, I always had gigs at night. Maybe you are saying the same thing as my inner voice had been saying, "Pay 20 bucks for admission and just get over it." Well, 20 bucks is 20 bucks...... This is why I had not been able to come back.... for five years.


Oh yes, I had never seen but there was the musical instrument collection at the museum. New and old, the ones look familiar and the ones not so much, from inside and outside of the US. There were the instruments I play as well. Here are Shamisen from 1820 and three-string contrabass.





I had a wonderful time in here and enjoyed huge collection of artworks and archeological artifacts. There is one artwork/artifacts I really admire.

King Menkaure (Mycerinus) and queen

I don't have a good eye for art or anything but I enjoyed this one a lot. I knew that I was not coming back any time soon so I locked on to this artwork, didn't blink for five minutes and burnt it on my pupil.

MFA is just a wonderful museum. If you come to Boston, you have got to go to MFA.
