Rubin Museum of Art

The Rubin Museum of Art, located in New York City’s dynamic Chelsea neighborhood, features a preeminent collection of artworks from the Himalayas and neighboring regions, including India. Seeking to familiarize visitors with the rich cultural traditions and ideas of the region, the Rubin encourages visitors to make cross-cultural connections to contemporary life. The welcoming galleries and Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room foster introspection and deep contemplation, inspiring an intimate connection with the objects and artistic traditions, but also stimulating new ways of seeing our diverse world. With more than 3,200 objects spanning a range of cultures throughout 1,500 years of human history, the Rubin offers an immersive and deeply personal museum experience for first-time visitors and specialists alike.
