About the Museum
The Rubin Museum of Art is a global museum dedicated to sharing Himalayan art with the world. Founded in 2004, the Rubin serves people internationally through a dynamic platform, participatory experiences, exhibitions, and partnerships.

The Rubin, inspired and informed by Himalayan art, invites people to contemplate the human experience and deepen connections with the world around them in order to expand awareness, enhance well-being, and cultivate compassion.

The Rubin advances scholarship through a series of educational initiatives, grants, long-term
loans, and the stewardship of a collection of nearly 3,500 Himalayan art objects spanning 1,500 years of history – providing unprecedented access and resources to scholars, artists, and students across the globe.

Currently celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2024, this fall the Rubin will transition into a global museum, that is – a ‘museum without walls’ with the goal of bringing greater awareness and understanding of Himalayan art to a wider and more diverse audience around the world.
