Fiscal Year 2015 Collections

With more than 33 million specimens, the Museum holds one of the world’s most comprehensive and important natural history collections.

In fiscal year 2015, improvements to the Museum’s collections database systems lead to refinement in the manner in which collections are enumerated. While 54,646 new items were added to the collections, the current estimate of the number of holdings overall shows a net decrease from 2014.
