Centennial Museum Collections

Centennial Museum home link and icon

As with most museums, objects on display at the Centennial Museum make up only a small portion of the collections. Some of this "hidden" material will take its turn on exhibit, rotating with currently displayed objects. However, much other material that may not be suitable for display is maintained primarily for research. The fruits of Museum research are seen in the details of the exhibits, in educational programs for the general public and school children, in education of undergraduate and graduate college students, in presentations before lay and professional audiences, and in professional publications.

There currently are over 70,000 catalogued objects in the Centennial Museum collection and over 150,000 in the collections of the Laboratory for Environmental Biology. This page is designed to allow web users to access a few of these objects, both those on display and some of interest currently in storage.

Material will continue to be added over an extended period of time. Check back frequently.
