Description:
The Fogg Museum, opened to the public in 1896, is the oldest of Harvard University's art museums. The Fogg joins the Busch-Reisinger Museum and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum as part of the Harvard Art Museums.

In 1925, the building was demolished and replaced by a Georgian Revival-style structure designed by Coolidge, Shepley, Bulfinch, and Abbott. In 2008, the building closed for a major renovation project to create a new museum building designed by architect Renzo Piano that will house all three Harvard art museums in one facility. During the renovation, selected works from all three museums are on display at the Arthur M. Sackler Museum.
