One can immediately tell that this museum has been endowed by many people for many years. Their collection of impressionist, Chinese, modern, etc. etc. art surpasses all expectations. We would return in a heartbeat.

We spent several hours touring the Harvard Art Museum. You will be greeted with a vast collection of art spending many centuries and some pieces date back into ancient times. Definitely worth a look.

Wonderful museum. Small gem of a museum. Encyclopaedic collection. Some rooms are over-filled, but at least the collection is really strong. Have visited many times.

Well worth a visit -- multiple collections under one roof; very pleasant facility and some outstanding art. Also there is a nice coffee shop for lunch if one is there midday.
