2 min read

The Harvard Art Museums are inviting all Cambridge residents to preview the newly renovated museums – free of charge – before they officially open to the public. Cambridge Community Day will take place on November 15th from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.

“The Harvard Art Museums have many different constituents — from faculty who constantly experiment with the way they teach, to students who learn with different kinds of technologies, to a curious public interested in arts, culture and lifelong learning. Our Cambridge neighbors are among them. While we have always offered free admission to Cambridge residents and families, and we are making this easier than ever before,” said Thomas Lentz, the Elizabeth and John Moors Cabot Director of the Harvard Art Museums.

“We are all incredibly excited about the re-opening of the Harvard Art Museums and the access our closest neighbors will have to the world-class collections inside,” said Christine Heenan, Vice President of Public Affairs and Communications at Harvard. “This unprecedented access to culture and arts, combined with other Harvard partnerships in public education, housing, and sustainability serve our mutual goal of enriching our community.”

The Harvard Art Museums renovation project brought together the Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and the Arthur M. Sackler Museums and their collections under one roof for the first time. The Harvard Art Museums have one of the largest and most important collections of art in the U.S.

On Cambridge Community Day, time-ticketed free admission will be made available to all Cambridge residents. To reserve your tickets please visit
