Founded in 1883, the museum has expanded its original neoclassical landmark building with two major additions to hold a collection of more than 89,000 objects spanning 20,000 years and representing diverse cultures across all continents.
Collections are grouped into seven curatorial areas: Arts of Africa & the Americas; Contemporary Art; Decorative Arts, Textiles & Sculpture; Asian Art; Paintings; Photography and New Media; and Prints and Drawings.
Please check the museum website for updated exhibition information. Scheduling may have been modified as a result of the temporary museum closure.
