The Dartmouth College art collections are housed in the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College. The architecturally stunning building contains a wide variety of collections and installations to explore and is currently undergoing expansion.

Permanent displays include artifacts, artwork, and natural history objects divided by continent, culture, and era. Ancient art includes Native American, Egypt, and dynastic Asian objects, and a wide variety from classic Greco-Roman antiquity. The Asian displays contain impressive Ashurnasirpal II stone relief tablets among many bronze, paper, and pottery designs. Paintings and sculptures from Europe vie for your attention against indigenous art from Oceania and multiple Native American groups.

Although many come to this Museum for ancient artifacts and classical art, it also has a variety of contemporary and modern works. These also come from all locations around the world with the intention of giving a comprehensive glimpse into how art shines from all cultures everywhere.

Explore the wonders of the Hood Museum on Wednesdays from 11 AM to 5 PM, Thursdays through Fridays from 11 AM to 8 PM, and Saturdays from 1 to 5 PM.

Entry is always free to people of all ages. Mask requirements are in place per Dartmouth rules.
