The MFA offers many fascinating educational opportunities from fun and informative programs, to lectures and music events.

Most programs are ongoing and free with admission to the Museum—another great benefit of Museum membership. You can also take advantage of daily docent tours that provide interesting commentary and information on the works of art on display. The museum also provides private events and catering rental options.
