Survey of the NMM's Collections
Note: Not all of the NMM's collections are listed in eMuseum. At this time, eMuseum includes instruments made before 1800 as well as instruments that are part of the Arne B. Larson Founding Collection. We are continually adding objects to eMuseum. If you cannot find what you are looking for, consult the NMM's checklists below.
Note: Some objects found in the checklist formats are not yet listed in eMuseum. Additionally, the checklists represent only a relatively small portion of the NMM's collections of more than 15,000 American, European, and Global instruments.
