Harvard Art Museums

The mission of the Harvard Art Museums is to preserve, document, present, interpret, and strengthen the collections and resources in their care, and in keeping with the larger purposes of Harvard University, to advance the knowledge and appreciation of art and art museums through research, teaching, professional training, and public education.

Discover the rich collections of the Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and Arthur M. Sackler Museums, newly 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 is dedicated to the study of art from the German-speaking countries of central and northern Europe, and is the only museum of its kind in North America; and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum is focused on Asian, ancient, and Islamic and later Indian art.
