Make your holiday season more festive at the Harvard Art Museums! Explore the collections, enjoy entertainment from DJ C-Zone in our Italian-inspired courtyard, participate in art-related activities, and kick back with friends. The Materials Lab makes its Museums at Night debut and you can also get a head start on your holiday shopping by taking advantage of a 10% discount at the Museum Shop. Night Shift Brewing is this month’s featured local vendor. As always, food will be available for purchase.

Visit our special exhibition Dare to Know: Prints and Drawings in the Age of Enlightenment as well as Funerary Portraits from Roman Egypt: Facing Forward.

After you’ve browsed the galleries, circle back to see what’s happening in the courtyard.

This event is free and open to everyone.

Harvard Art Museums at Night usually takes place the last Thursday of every month, from 5 to 9pm. Due to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays falling at the end of the month in November and December, however, there will only be one Harvard Art Museums at Night event for both months, taking place on Thursday, December 1.

Each night features a new mix of local talent and community partners to make this a festive occasion for all.

Advance reservations are encouraged, but walk-in visitors are always welcome. Please note that space may be limited due to capacity. Reservations are available two weeks before the event.

Visit the museum website for the latest visitor policies and parking information.

The Harvard Art Museums are committed to accessibility for all visitors. For anyone requiring accessibility accommodations for our programs, please contact us at am_register@harvard.edu at least 48 hours in advance.
