Academic and Public Programs


Situated on a bustling university campus, the Harvard Art Museums welcome neighbors and visitors to experience our collections and programming. The museums also support teachers at the city’s high school, Cambridge Rindge & Latin School (CRLS), located just one block away. Students in the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Field Experience Program work with CRLS teachers and museums staff to facilitate high school classes in the Collections Galleries.

Visitors are invited to explore the galleries independently, with a student guide, or by using a digital tool. Public programs—lectures, performances, workshops, and films—are offered throughout the museums, in spaces such as the Art Study Center, Calderwood Courtyard, Materials Lab, and Menschel Hall. Visitors can learn more about exhibitions, programs, and events on the website and through Index, the museums’ magazine.
