American University Museum, Washington DC

4.7
Housed in the dynamic and multidisciplinary Katzen Arts Center, the American University Museum builds its programming on the strengths of a great college and great university. We focus on international art because American University has a global commitment. We show political art because the university is committed to human rights, social justice, and political engagement. We support the artists in our community because the university takes an active and responsible role in the formation of our contemporary art and culture.

We present exhibitions that mirror American University’s aspiration to be the premier Washington-based, global university. Our programming puts the best art of our region in a national and international context. Our collections enable us to present the art history of Washington, while our Kunsthalle attitude brings the most provocative art of our time to our place.

  • Great univ. My son was there for great engineering week. Kids were exposed to all faciet of engineering, took part in team competition and visited DC attractions.
  • A modern venue with a collection of classic and contemporary art from around the world. It is a prominent extension to the beautiful AU campus. The serenity makes you forget that you’re in the heart of DC. The presentation room was ultra modern.
