With more than 20,000 objects that span the history of civilization, the Fleming Museum's collection offers a unique opportunity to study visual cultures from early Mesopotamia through contemporary America. The breadth of the collections supports our mission of encouraging visitors to understand, appreciate, and interpret our worldwide cultural heritage. Art and artifacts from Ancient Egypt, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas are presented in our permanent collection galleries as well as in changing exhibitions.

This online search tool allows students, teachers, scholars, and art and history lovers of all stripes to browse or search for artworks and artifacts, and view images and information for objects both on view in the galleries and tucked away in storage.
