Gardner Museum Theft

An active and Ongoing Investigation

The Museum is offering a $10 million reward for information leading to the recovery of the stolen works.

The 1990 theft of 13 works of art from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s collection remains unsolved, although the Museum’s commitment to resolving the crime has never diminished since its occurrence 33 years ago.  The Museum, the FBI, and the US Attorney's office are still seeking viable leads that could result in safe return of the art.

The Museum is offering a $10 million dollar reward for information leading directly to the safe return of the stolen works. (A share of the reward would be given in exchange for information leading to the restitution of any portion of the works.) A separate reward of $100,000 is being offered for the return of the Napoleonic eagle finial. 

Anyone with information about the stolen artworks should contact the Gardner Museum directly. Confidentiality is assured.
