Search Cambridge Massachusetts

The Busch-Reisinger Museum features Austrian Secession art, German Expressionist art, 1920s abstract art, and Bauhaus material. The museum also contains other very interesting materials including Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque pieces, 16th century paintings and 18th century porcelain. The museum has recently devoted more time and energy to post-war and contemporary art from German-speaking countries in Europe.

Permanent exhibits in the museum include more modern art and design since 1880, located in Werner Otto Hall. Work from earlier eras can be viewed in the Adolphus Busch Hall. In the Study Room, visitors can see art and research, on their own or in classes. The Study Room is also frequently used for light-sensitive works, photographs, textiles, prints, drawings, artists' books, and other archival materials. Special exhibitions and publications come out often, and lectures are periodically scheduled.
