Rubin Museum of Art

Rubin Museum of Art Review

This sleek and serene museum spread over six floors is the largest in the Western Hemisphere dedicated to the art of the Himalayas and the pieces shown here include paintings on cloth, metal sculptures, and textiles dating from the 2nd century onward. Many of the works from areas such as Tibet, Nepal, southwest China, and India are related to Buddhism, Hinduism, Bon, and other eastern religions. You'll find a pleasant café and gift shop on the ground floor.
