Set Sail with Dutch Art Travel Raffle


Win a trip for two to Holland and Belgium, inspired by Dutch Art in a Global Age: Masterpieces from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Tickets are $20, and only 5,000 tickets will be sold. See raffle rules and regulations.

Travel from Amsterdam to Bruges aboard the riverboat Magnifique III, Tuesday, May 28–Tuesday, June 4, 2024, courtesy of Museum Travel Alliance and Delta Air lines.

Your journey begins in Amsterdam with a walking tour and a visit to the famous Rijksmuseum, which houses masterpieces such as Rembrandt’s The Night Watch and Vermeer’s The Milkmaid. Then board the intimate Magnifique III, a boutique river vessel with just 20 cozy cabins. As you cruise along meandering rivers and canals, you’ll admire the perfectly aligned Dutch windmills of Kinderdijk up close and visit Antwerp to see the incredible Descent from the Cross by Rubens. In Ghent you’ll explore the city’s beautiful Saint Bavo’s Cathedral and marvel at its most spectacular treasure, the Van Eyck brothers’ Adoration of the Mystic Lamb. Your adventure ends in the fairytale city of Bruges, where you’ll discover an authentic medieval estate and see Michelangelo’s celebrated Madonna and Child.

Raffle tickets are available Thursday, October 19, 2023–Sunday, January 7, 2024, online, in person at the Museum’s Tickets/Information Desk in East Building, or by calling (919) 715-5923.
