It's not a big museum, you can see the whole thing easily in a couple of hours. Definitely on the avant garde side (at least for Boston), you may not like all the exhibits, but you'll certainly remember them. As you're walking around, a staff member may suddenly start expounding on a particular piece, and it's almost always worth stopping to listen. It's not super expensive, but Thursday evenings are free if that's a consideration. There isn't a T stop nearby, so be prepared to either drive or find yourself walking a bit.
