Two art museums in Boston are celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 15, by opening their doors to the public for free.

The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA), 25 Harbor Shore Drive, opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m. All exhibits are free and open to the public.

At the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) on the Avenue of the Arts (465 Huntington Avenue), there’s an open house with live performances, gallery tours, lectures, and art making projects. All exhibits are also open to the public. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Parking is limited at both locations, so public transit is the best option. To reach the ICA, take the MBTA Red Line (subway) to South Station and transfer to the Silver Line Waterfront (bus). The ICA is a short walk from either the World Trade Center or Courthouse stations.

The MFA is accessible from two T stops: The Museum of Fine Arts station on the Green Line’s E train and the Ruggles station on the Orange Line (subway). (Boston’s public transit system is called “The T” by the locals.)

Plan your trips on the T.

  • ICA, (617) 478-3100,
  • MFA, (617) 267-9300
