Rubin Museum of Art

Himalayan, Indian, and Tibetan Masterpieces
Rubin Museum of Art new york
The Rubin Museum of Art is a museum dedicated to the collection, display, and preservation of the art and cultures of the Himalayas, India and neighboring regions, with a permanent collection focused particularly on Tibetan art.

The Rubin Museum of Art (Rubin) is one of the most well-known “specialized museums” in the city. It dedicates itself to a very specific niche of artwork: the kind that comes out of the Himalayas, India, and Tibet. Tucked away in the neighborhood of Chelsea, this museum is proud of its mission to make visitors connect modern life with those ideas from Himalayan regions. Its interior resembles that of a stately mansion, with winding staircases and even a performance space in the basement. It also opened in 2004, making it one of the younger galleries in town.

With an in-house café, gift shop, and several immersive displays, it is easy to let one’s mind get lost in the Rubin. It is open Wednesday-Monday, and as a bonus, Rubin Museum of Art produces special music events on Friday nights in the performance space. Called the “K2 Lounge” series, these activities can range from a jazz show to a movie screening.
