|Looking down the platform.|
|A crossing. And...what's that strange thing to the left?|
|This is probably dangerous, but it's a cool photo...|
|A train stopped at the station.|
|Argh, this right-of-way is so pretty!|
Ridership: Surprisingly, this is the lowest-ridership station on the E's in-median street section. It's still pretty good for Green Line street stops, though, with 1,683 riders per weekday. Aside from museum-goers, there are also student riders, as we are still very much in college-land here.
Pros: I think this is the best station on the E. It has all the amenities you would want from a street stop, it's very clean, and the right-of-way looks great! The station even has that strange wheelchair lift.
Cons: Not much! I guess the broken ticket validator and lack of outdoor benches are problems, but these are more annoyances than true issues.
Nearby and Noteworthy: It's right in the name! The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, too.
Final Verdict: 8/10
Museum of Fine Arts is top-notch for a Green Line street stop. It has all the basic amenities you would expect from a street stop, plus the wheelchair lift! Yes, there could be a few more outdoor benches, but this is a great station overall.
