Harvard Art Museum

The Harvard Art Museum consists of the Fogg Art Museum, which specializes in Western Art from the Middle Ages to the present, the Busch-Reisinger Museum, which specializes in art of Central and Northern Europe, and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum, which specializes in ancient, Islamic and Asian art. Taken together, the museums hold one of the largest and most valuable collections of art in the United States.

A new museum building is scheduled to open in the future and is currently being designed by architect Renzo Piano.

The Harvard Art Museum has one of the better on-line collections of art, with over 81,000 objects listed, many with photographs.
