if you're a european and are told that boston has a european flair to it, i gotta say "nay nay". apart from the museums - especially the museum of fine arts - i find boston highly overrated, and its flair was everything but european.
It's funny..I've been to Boston numerous times for pleasure and for business, but never had an opportunity to stroll through the MOFA. It was a real treat to see such an excellent museum in the northeast.
I was impressed with how big this museum is. There are various types of exhibits here like Egyptian art and sarcophagi, Grecian art, modern art, and some of your more famous artists' work like Van Gogh, Monet, etc.
