The American University Museum is a three-story public museum and sculpture garden located within the university’s dynamic and multidisciplinary Katzen Arts Center. The region’s largest university facility for exhibiting art, the museum has a permanent collection that highlights AU’s Watkins Collection and The Rothfeld Collection of Contemporary Israeli Art.
Rotating exhibitions emphasize regional, national, and international contemporary art. The museum’s collections enable presentation of the art history of Washington, while our Kunsthalle style ensures constantly changing, highly relevant and provocative programming.
The museum is closed between exhibitions. Please check for opening status.
