About the Museum
The Rubin Museum of Art located in the Chelsea, New York City area, explores and celebrates the diversity and uniqueness of Himalayan art, ideas and culture across history and into the present.

Through Himalayan art, cultures, and ideas, the Rubin serves as a guidepost to examine big questions of what it means to be human today with the intent of creating a more compassionate, resilient world.

With its globally renowned collection, the Rubin fosters understanding and appreciation of this extraordinary region by connecting its art and ideas to contemporary issues that are relevant in our visitors’ lives today.

Largely inspired by the philosophical traditions of Buddhism and Hinduism, the Rubin offers innovative exhibitions and programs that examine provocative ideas across the arts and sciences. In doing so, the Museum serves as a space for reflection and personal transformation, opening windows to inner worlds so visitors can better navigate outer ones.

Within its five floors of galleries are several long-term rotating installations drawn from the permanent collection, including Gateway to Himalayan Art, Masterworks and our recently installed interactive Mandala Lab among others.
