Harvard Art Museums

In 1874, when the President and Fellows of Harvard College appointed Charles Eliot Norton the ?rst professor of art history in America, they could hardly have anticipated a day when Harvard would have three distinct art museums, each a vital part of the university and the larger museum community.

The three museums that make up the Harvard Art Museums are entities in their own right, each with a particular focus and collection strength. They are linked through a common mission and a common administration.

As we move toward the future, a new building will unite the three museums under one roof in a single facility that will more e?ectively carry out the mission of the Harvard Art Museums. Each museum will maintain its separate identity, closely tied to the ideas that inspired its creation and that inform the institution’s rich history.
