HARVARD ART MUSEUMS

Discover the rich collections of the Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and Arthur M. Sackler Museums, recently united in a state-of-the-art facility designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The Fogg Museum includes Western art from the Middle Ages to the present; the Busch-Reisinger Museum, unique among North American museums, is dedicated to the study of all modes and periods of art from central and northern Europe, with an emphasis on German-speaking countries; and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum is focused on Asian art, Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern art, and Islamic and later Indian art.

The renovation and expansion of the museums’ landmark building on the Harvard University campus provides new spaces for research, teaching, and learning – all of which are at the heart of their mission. Visitors are invited to learn about research connected to the objects on display; explore new ideas in the galleries; gain a glimpse of leading conservators at work; and in the Art Study Center, request a wide range of objects from the collections for close looking (by appointment only, Mon-Fri).
