Get your fill of Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Zinneken’s.

At the Museum of Fine Arts’ current exhibit, Class Distinctions: Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer, the upper crust mingles with the hoi polloi on the same wallspace. Fitting this high-low theme, the MFA has concocted a special deal—so now you can wallow in the silk-and-satin-robed opulence of the Low Countries’ high society (as well as voyeuristically inspecting the shops and inner sanctums of its blue-collar workers), all for a wallet-friendly price.

Starting tonight, the MFA is having “Double Dutch” nights, offering two-for-one admission to Class Distinctions on Thursday nights through December 17. That’s two tickets, for $25. To claim yours, first RSVP on Facebook, then show the RSVP on your phone at the MFA ticket desk. The exhibit runs through January 18, 2016—but if you ever needed extra incentive to excuse yourself from the fray that is holiday shopping season, and treat yourself to a night at the museum, this would be it.

And to sweeten the deal, you can top off your MFA visit with a Belgian waffle from Zinneken’s: The food truck, which will be parked outside from 5-9 p.m., is serving up special “Rembrandt Raspberry” waffles.

“Double Dutch” Nights: December 3, 10 and 17, at the Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave., Boston, 617-267-9300,
