Memorial Day Open House at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston

Monday, May 28, 10 a.m. - 4:45 p.m.
Take a global journey of the MFA's collection and special exhibitions, while enjoying FREE general admission and reduced tickets to Edward Hopper. Enjoy a world music performance of percussion infused electronic music by members of Electric Kulintang. Join immigrants from the local Chinese community as they share family stories of journeys to America and recount memories of childhood. Watch The Crocodile River, a film exploring how crossing international borders and emotional boundaries enables two people of vastly different cultures - one American and one African - to find common ground. Hear a presentation by the MFA’s Teen Arts Council - a group of teenagers engaged in a year-long apprenticeship - about their contribution to the current exhibition War and Discontent. Discover the many cultures in the museum using maps, then draw objects from different countries and create travel journals. Tickets to Edward Hopper are only $6 during the Open House!
