The majority of the Museum’s fine art collection is administered by the Library. Many items from the Collection are on exhibit in the permanent halls but hundreds are in Library storage or out on loan.


The Memorabilia Collection preserves many objects that help tell the story of the Museum’s history, including ephemeral components of exhibition, scientific and documentary equipment, as well as collections of personal artifacts, including those of Lincoln Ellsworth and Carl Akeley.
