The McMaster Museum of Art officially opened in its current location on June 11, 1994. The Museum houses McMaster University’s permanent collection of more than 6000 objects that encompass the history of art from the late 15th to the 21st century, and coins and antiquities from Mediterranean cultures and China.
It is recognized internationally for its specialist collection of early twentieth-century German prints and outstanding European paintings, drawings and prints, including a donation by Hamilton businessman Dr. Herman Herzog Levy O.B.E. of his own private collection. There are also significant holdings of Cape Dorset prints, sculptures and artifacts as well as a finely focused collection of historical and contemporary Canadian art.
