Collections Overview

The collections of the Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology are vast and diverse. The total number of objects in the collection is approximately 3.8 million, the largest of which are the California collections.

Our history spans over 100 years, and we are now in the process of revising our new collections management database to manage this wealth of information. The revised system will soon give us the opportunity to open our collections to the world through the web.

Please visit the online resources page for a full list of links to our collection data offered on the web. As the process of developing our collections pages is ongoing, your feedback is appreciated.
