Since its founding in the late 19th century, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has grown to become one of the premier art museums in the United States. The museum is famous for its neoclassical style architecture designed by architect Guy Lowell along with its West Wing addition designed by I.M. Pei. Highlights of the 450,000 objects housed at the Museum of Fine Arts include works from ancient Egypt, classical European paintings, a large Japanese collection, and a Japanese garden.
