The Rubin Museum of Art is 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 museum originated from a private collection of Himalayan art and opened in 2004 with the capacity to exhibit over 1,000 objects including paintings, sculptures, and textiles, as well as ritual objects from the 2nd to the 20th centuries. 

Besides exhibitions based on the museum’s permanent collection, it also serves as a venue for national and international exhibitions.
