One of America's grandest art museums, the MFA holds American and European paintings from the 7th century to the present (Sargent, O'Keefe, and Monet are well-represented); sizable collections of African, Egyptian, and Near Eastern artifacts; and one of the most highly regarded collections of Asian art in the Western world. The collection is housed in an 1909 neoclassical building and two critically acclaimed additions: the Art of the Americas Wing, by British architect Norman Foster, and the Linde Family Wing of contemporary art. Make a day of it; the MFA has excellent restaurants, innovative special exhibits, and a peaceful courtyard. The museum is free on Wednesdays after 4 pm (though you'll still get hit up for a donation), and paid admission entitles you to come back for free one time within a 10-day period. —updated by Jon Marcus

Open daily 10 am to 4:45 pm; the West Wing and select galleries stay open until 9:45 pm Wednesdays through Fridays.
