The Hofstra University Museum of Art offers programs for students, educators, families, and the community, connecting visitors with art in new and educational ways.


The collection contains more than 5,200 works of art and cultural artifacts, dating from 1500 BCE to the 21st century, representing six continents, plus 70 sculptures that can be found displayed across Hofstra’s campus.


Through dynamic educational programs and services, visitors to the Museum are invited to make meaningful connections with art that enrich their understanding of themselves and the diverse world community in which they live.


The Museum welcomes visitors to its galleries Tuesday through Sunday during the school year. Galleries are closed on major holidays, during Hofstra University recesses and is closed on weekends in the summer.
