• Magna Carta to be featured in Museum of Fine Arts exhibit

     BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A special exhibit featuring only one of four surviving copies of the original Magna Carta will begin just days before the Fourth of July celebrations in Boston.

    Beginning July 2, Museum of Fine Arts visitors will be able to see the document, which is said to have inspired the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    The Magna Carta was written in 1215 by barons looking to protect their property against the king.

    Drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Sons of Liberty Bowl will also be featured in the museum's Art of the Americas Wing through September 1.
