Welcome to the Raclin Murphy Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame. Home to one of the nation’s oldest and most esteemed academic art museums.
Classic but contemporary, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed facility features 23 galleries and numerous site-specific commissions by internationally renowned artists such as Jenny Holzer, Maya Lin, Mimmo Paladino, Jaume Plensa, and Kiki Smith. In addition to presenting the storied permanent collection and dynamic temporary exhibitions, the Museum features the Mary Queen of Families Chapel, a sacred space for contemplation and Masses, offering a unique curatorial opportunity to consider important works from the collection.
The galleries integrate painting, sculpture, decorative arts, works on paper, and textiles. A multi-story Sculpture Court is an integral feature of the building, with natural light that creates a luminous and spacious area for displaying sculpture. The Teaching Gallery, Learning Commons, and Object Study Room celebrate the vital educational mission of the Museum and nestled in the central atrium, the cafe and bookshop provide a complete visitor experience.
