The Rubin Enlightens: from 'The Ticker' at Baruch College

No need to pack your rucksack. Put away that hiking pole. You can discover Bhutan, the remote kingdom hidden deep in the Himalayas, with just a short trek over to 17th street.

About Us

RMA admission, $10 for students, provides access to the RMA’s six floors of changing exhibitions and array of engaging public programs (additional fees are required for some programs). FREE admission is offered to everyone every Friday night, 6:00-10:00 p.m. While this in itself is a rich opportunity, it is but a beginning!

For CUNY students, faculty, and staff, the collaborative possibilities with RMA are limited only by imaginative capacity. Driven by the concept that a love of learning and knowledge of other cultures is essential for our global society, RMA encourages inquiry and dialogue—and is eager to hear your ideas!

Suspect that there’s a connection between issues in criminal justice and the aspects of human nature expressed through Tibetan art? Or a link between neuroscience and mandalas? Ever attend a poetry workshop in the presence of bodhisattvas? Perhaps now you will. Explore this site. Be inspired. Make the connection. Make it happen.


Educational Enrichment for Classes

A tour through RMA deeply enriches learning and RMA welcomes professors and their students in any field. If you see an educational connection between Himalayan art and your classroom curricula, or just want to organize a group tour, visit or send an email.

Special Events and Programs

In addition to its six stunning gallery floors, RMA boasts a theater, café/bar, and workshop spaces. If you would like to discuss arranging an event—a performance, reading, lecture, recital, screening, or workshop—please contact Chris Phelan, Manager of Special Events.

Off-Site Events

RMA works with campuses and organizations to partner on selected events throughout New York City. If you would like to discuss possibilities for collaborative sponsorship and marketing of an event on your campus, please contact Louise Brooks , Community Relations and Outreach Coordinator.

Internships and Training

If you appreciate museums and would like to gain valuable experience working in one, consider applying for an internship at RMA. For more information visit or contact Michele Illuzzi , Coordinator of Volunteers.
