  • This is a very doable museum if you have an afternoon to spend in Harvard Square. They have a very nice variety of eras and artists represented in the collections. The lobby seating is usually full of people studying instead of cafe patrons but that’s to be expected. The staff is friendly and polite. I’m grateful to have such a lovely art museum nearby!
  • My partner and I experienced blatant discrimination from the museum staff throughout our entire experience. It was unfortunate being followed in every room due to the color of our skin. As black and yellow bodies, we thought we would have been more welcomed on Harvard's campus, but it was just a reminder of the racism and elitism that exists on this campus. I hope Harvard will do a better job training and diversifying their staff.
  • Recently reopened following a long renovation, this museum is now a work of art in and of itself, graced by architect Renzo Piano's vision. Located across from Harvard Yard, this is a convenient stop for tourists. It is a teaching museum, and this is obvious on the top floors, so the first two floors are of most appeal to visitors. It has the largest Picasso collection in the Boston area.
  • Amazing curatorial staff and really great food and staff at the café! The exhibitions are always challenging, enlightening, and consistently revolutionary!
  • Really complete collection. Good museum.
