FF Museum of Fine Arts

Every Friday, I feature a fun and budget-friendly option in the Greater Boston area. The “Feature Friday” is typically mentioned on the Cheap Eats list, Free Things to Do in Boston, or Discount Attractions. However, there’s so much budget-friendly ideas on my pages, I thought it would be fun to feature something budget-friendly and different each week. Also, each Feature Friday is something I have personal experience with or took advantage of recently! Enjoy!

Admission to the Museum of Fine Arts is by voluntary contribution on Wednesday nights after 4pm. You do need to head to the ticket stand/cashier upon entering to receive a ticket, and you will be asked if you would like to contribute to the museum. However, you can contribute how much or little as you’d like.

The MFA also has a few free museum days each year with the next one on Memorial Day. The MFA Free Days can be found here. The MFA is also free to Bank of America cardholders (per cardholder- not family) the first weekend of every month when you show your BoA bank card.

Youths 17 and under can also receive free admission weekdays after 3pm, weekends, and Boston Public School Holidays!

Also, the Boston Loves Impressionism at the MFA kicks on Friday, February 14th. If you previously voted in the exhibition, check out this tweet:
