The MFA is amazing but so large it can be overwhelming. I work at the MFA doing children's tours, and I would love to show you around. The museum just opened a new wing for American Art and Contemporary Art. Included with their ancient collections, there is something to see for everyone. I am happy to do a tour on any topic you are interested in . I have been studying the collection for about a year, and I love sharing what I know about art and art history. The MFA also holds a lot of important colonial paintings, objects, and even rooms, so it is a good way to get a sense of Boston's history as well.

★★★★★ A great short tour to start your MFA trip by Eric F.
Amy's a great tour guide. My girlfriend and I got a 1 hour private tour to learn a bit more about the specific sections of the museum she was interested in. Amy worked at our pace and didn't waste our time by telling us about pieces that we told her we weren't interested in. I'd definitely go again.
Personal recommendation from Austin W.
Amy Beth has an eye for details of familiarity in landscapes. I would use her recommendations to explore anywhere, because it's taking tips from an artist of culture
Personal recommendation from Ted K.
I asked for a tour of the Impressionist gallery. Amy had great knowledge of the paintings as well as the artist. We asked many detailed quesitons which she answered exceptionally well. I look forward to another tour of hers and I strongly recommend any of her tours at the MFA.
Personal recommendation from Bristol M.
Amy Beth's tours are creative and engaging! She is really fabulous with children of all ages and is especially gifted at making historical and art historical material accessible and interesting. Her art background gives her a wonderful awareness of detail and it is a joy to see the city and art through her eyes.
Personal recommendation from Sylvia P.
I've known Amy Beth for a while and I already knew she's a fantastic person. I recently found out she's a fantastic tour guide as well! Amy Beth took me along with about 10 other people on a backstage tour of the MFA. I was amazed not only at how easily she navigated what to me were labyrinthine hallways and galleries, but at how much she knew about each place she showed us. I especially loved the Chinese house area, where you can sit in a chair that gives you a foot massage. Go on a tour with Amy Beth--you'll have a great time!
