Visitor Guide

September 1, 2019

Welcome to the Harvard Art Museums!

We are three museums—the Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and Arthur M. Sackler—all in one building. Have fun exploring our galleries; just ask any staff member for help finding your way.

Enjoy your visit!

Create your own museum adventure or let us point you in the right direction. Check out the temporary exhibitions on Level 3, relax with friends at Jenny’s Cafe in the Calderwood Courtyard, or explore the diverse and expansive permanent collections.

We are committed to creating an environment that fosters inclusion and belonging. Please join us in ensuring that every visitor feels welcomed and respected.


Tuesday to Sunday, 10am–5pm

Guidelines for Your Visit

We’re here to help! Stop by admissions for assistance. While our gallery attendants’ primary responsibility is the safety and security of the people and the art in the museums, they are also available to help with a question or to point you in the right direction.

— Sketching is encouraged. Pick up a pencil at admissions; no pens in the galleries.

— We offer complimentary lockers on Level 1 and the Lower Level; your backpack, umbrella, or any larger item must be stored.

All entrances are wheelchair accessible; service animals are welcome; wheelchairs, walkers, and strollers are available to borrow; and large-print maps are available.
