Don’t Miss the First Friday Events at The Museum of Fine Arts

If it’s been a while since you’ve visited a major art museum, you might be surprised at how vibrant and modern museums Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts is. This is a prime example of a culturally relevant 21st century museum.

Take, for example, the museum’s monthly First Friday event, which turns the museum into a literal party: on the first Friday of every month you can wander around the museum and enjoy the art, while also tapping your toes to live musical performances, sipping on cocktails, and noshing on tapas-style small plates. Sound good? Just be sure to order your tickets ahead of time, because they tend to sell out pretty quickly. Families should also keep in mind that the museum offers free admission for kids and teens every weekday after 3 p.m., so it’s easy to give your family some culture without breaking the bank.
