The new Renzo Piano designed Harvard Art Museums is so dynamic and state of the art it will take your breath away. Housing an extensive collection that combines the Fogg, the Bush-Reisinger and Arthur M. Sackler under one roof, it's a comprehensive collection with something for everyone. The pyramid glass roof allows a flood of natural light to stream through in the daytime and leaves a lasting impression.
The restoration and conservation areas are glass enclosed as well, leaving the inner workings of the museum exposed for observation in an interesting way. With over 250,000 pieces, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Come with a game plan; stop and enjoy music in the central courtyard and snacks at the cafe and you will surely discover a space as interesting as the art found within.
