Art Museum Day
Special Event

The Harvard Art Museums are celebrating Art Museum Day with free admission for all visitors. This is a great opportunity to see highlights from our collections before the current Arthur M. Sackler Museum galleries close at the end of regular hours on June 1, 2013, in order for us to conduct the final phases of our renovation and expansion project.



Exhibitions on display include Re-View, an overview of American, Latin American, European, Islamic, and Asian art from the Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and Arthur M. Sackler museum collections; and In Harmony: The Norma Jean Calderwood Collection of Islamic Art, a brilliant display of Persian ceramics, manuscripts, drawings, and lacquerware.



A 10% discount will also be offered on all new membership purchases that day. To join, please go to the admission desk in the Sackler Museum lobby or call 617-495-4544. Visit our membership page to learn about the many benefits of supporting our mission.



Art Museum Day is an annual event organized by the Association of Art Museum Directors. Each year it coincides with International Museum Day, organized by the International Council of Museums. Both events highlight the importance of museums in our world.
