Museum of Fine Arts Boston Hosts Free Events During School Vacation Week

Having completed its major expansion in November 2010, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), is now inviting visitors to build their own mini-museum during the Cogan Family Foundation Vacation Week Adventures, from Monday, February 21 through Friday, February 25. Kick-off the week on President’s day by searching the new Art of the Americas Wing for all of the U.S. President’s that reside there. Throughout the week, a wide range of fun, hands-on activities encourage children to draw inspiration from the Museum’s artwork in order to create their own masterpieces to be hung in a ―museum‖ they create themselves. Visitors can also explore masterpieces on a tour especially for families or sit back and enjoy theatrical performances and story hours.

The MFA’s Vacation Week Adventures, which run daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., are free for children 17 and younger with paid adult admission and do not require registration. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation is available on Wednesday, February 23. For more information, visitors can view the calendar section of the Museum’s website,
