The Chazen Museum of Art (formerly the Elvehjem Museum of Art), one of America's leading university museums, has a permanent collection of more than 19,000 works of art dating from 2300 B.C. to the present. Of special note are the collections of ancient art, Indian miniature paintings, Japanese woodblock prints, Renaissance medals, and Russian and Soviet paintings. In addition to the permanent collection, the Chazen offers about twelve temporary exhibitions from its own collections and from other museums throughout the year.

Lectures, gallery talks, and tours are available to the public; admission to exhibitions and all programs is free.

Drop-in guided tours for groups of 10 or fewer are available on Sundays at 2 pm and Thursdays at 12:30 pm, and last 40 minutes. No reservation is required.
