Harvard Art Museums

The Harvard Art Museums are comprised of three separate museums -- the Fogg Museum, Busch-Reisinger Museum, and Arthur M. Sackler Museum. The Fogg Museum is renowned for its holdings of Western paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, photographs, prints, and drawings dating from the Middle Ages to the present. The Busch-Reisinger Museum’s holdings include significant works of Austrian Secession art, German expressionism, 1920s abstraction, and materials related to the Bauhaus. The Arthur M. Sackler Museum is dedicated to works from Asia, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean. Group visits of eight or more people should register in advance. The Art Study Center at the Harvard Art Museums encourages extended interactions with original works of art. By appointment, groups can request objects not currently on display in the galleries, facilitating self-directed teaching and learning from works in all media.
