Director's Message

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Harvard Art Museums! As each season unfolds in Cambridge, our museum team is energized by visitors from both campus and community. Students contribute so much to the life of the museums, including as regular tour guides in the galleries. At the same time, we are delighted to be engaging with so many first-time visitors following the adoption of our new free admission policy for all visitors that began in June 2023.

It is wonderful to see our campus and regional community, as well as visitors from around the world, taking full advantage of new ways to experience the museums. Saturdays and Sundays have been especially popular with families—each weekend the museums are bustling with activity, and we invite you to be part of the action. Additionally, more of you have been attending our Harvard Art Museums at Night events. We’re keeping our doors open late on the last Thursday of every month for an evening of art, fun, food, music, and more. A record number of visitors have found this a great way to connect with friends after work while finding inspiration in the galleries.

As always, I am incredibly grateful to our staff, who bring so much commitment and creativity to their work at the museums. Come and get to know us—we are here for you.

The latest exhibitions and programs are always posted on our website. Look to see what else is new this spring!
