  • This reopened recently and it is now a beautiful and powerful museum. You could even sit at a table and study in the lobby for a bit, or read a book. It is nice. I would recommend going twice if you want to see the entire collection. If you're a Harvard student, admission is free, if I remember correctly. Way to go!
  • Thoughtful collection of well curated pieces and helpful descriptions. Medium sized museum so you can pretty much cover the whole thing in one day or less.
  • Collections are strong and diverse, but it feels as though pieces are presented to check off boxes in a textbook. The galleries make it all feel a bit sterile. Worth seeing but quite expensive and Harvard isn't really hurting for money
  • Great collection for impressionism artwork. The building itself is nice too
  • Very diverse set of exhibits. I was especially drawn to the aboriginal art. Also just a very attractive building.
