We’ve Updated our Collections Database (come see)!

In 2009, we launched our first online collections database, allowing users to view over 22,000 objects in the museum’s collection. Today, we are proud to announce that we have updated the database, making it more user-friendly and providing access to larger images.

We are constantly adding new information and new objects; our database is a living, changing entity. Object records evolve through research, new scholarship, and an ongoing dialogue and interaction with those who make use of the objects.

Some fun new features:

 

 

 

Take a coffee break and spend some time exploring the Henry’s collection from your computer! If you find a series of objects you’d like to research further, you can make an appointment to see the objects in person in the our Reed Collection Study Center. That’s right, we’ll pull the objects out of storage and show them to you. How cool is that?
