Fodor's Review

In late 2014, the combined collections of the Busch-Reisinger and Fogg museums (which closed in 2008) and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum (which closed in 2013) reopened under one glorious mostly glass roof, under the umbrella name Harvard Art Museums. Housed in a facility designed by award-winning architect Renzo Piano, the 204,000-square-foot museum is spread over seven levels, allowing more of Harvard’s 250,000-piece art collection to be seen in one place. Highlights include American and European paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts from the Fogg Museum; and works by German expressionists, materials related to the Bauhaus, and postwar contemporary art from German-speaking Europe from the Busch-Reisinger Museum. In addition to the gallery spaces, there's a 300-seat theater, a café, plus conservation and research labs.
