Harvard Art Museums
The Harvard Art Museums, located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, are home to one of the largest and most renowned art collections in the United States. The museums’ vast collections feature works from ancient times to the present, and from the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Mediterranean, and West and East Asia.
The Harvard Art Museums comprise three museums—the Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and Arthur M. Sackler Museums—and four research centers, including the Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies, a world leader in fine arts conservation, research, and training. Works from all three museums have been brought together in a stunning new facility at 32 Quincy Street, designed by award-winning architect Renzo Piano. This state-of-the-art facility seamlessly combines the Fogg Museum’s landmark 1927 building with a striking contemporary addition, all under a breathtaking glass roof that bridges old and new.
For more than a hundred years, the Harvard Art Museums have encouraged students, faculty, and the public to engage in critical looking and thinking through original works of art. Like the great university that surrounds us, teaching, learning, and research are at the core of the museums’ mission.
