Object Study Classrooms

Close-up, individualized study of original works of art from UMMA’s collection is available for groups of up to 20 people in the UMMA’s two specially outfitted Object Study Classrooms, the Ernestine and Herbert Ruben Study Center for Works on Paper and the Object Study Classroom, located on the lower level of the Frankel Wing.

Due to the proximity to original works of art, there is no food or drink and pencils only in the object study rooms.
