I'm not an art person but there are so many interesting things to see here that one visit is definitely not enough. I think the way the museum was built/exhibitions distributed is confusing and hard to follow .

Absolutely amazing collection of all types of art. You could easily spend hrs here and I'm sure people do. You can very easily get lost (in a good way) wondering around. Highly recommend a visit.

loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign

I am not sure about that as security changes frequently as the times demand. It is probably best to call them directly.
