About the Museum

The Rubin Museum of Art in Chelsea, New York City, explores and celebrates the diversity and uniqueness of Himalayan art, ideas and culture across history and into the present. With its globally renowned collection of nearly 4,000 objects largely centered around the Tibetan Plateau and spanning 1,500 years, the Rubin fosters understanding and appreciation of this region by relating its art and ideas to our shared human experience today.

 The Rubin offers innovative exhibitions and programs that examine provocative ideas across the arts and explore the mind. Through this work, the Rubin serves as a space for reflection and personal transformation, opening windows to inner worlds so visitors can better navigate outer ones.

 The five gallery floors feature several long-term rotating installations drawn from the permanent collection as well as frequent short-term exhibitions that are more broadly conceived.

 Now in its second decade, the Rubin welcomes thousands of visitors and has a growing membership of more than 4,000 households.
