Bryn Mawr’s Art and Artifacts collections number more than 50,000 objects. These include fine, decorative, and culturally-specific art objects from across place and time, archaeological and ethnographic materials, as well as scientific instruments and specimens. The collections enhance the educational mission of Bryn Mawr College by supporting teaching and learning across diverse academic departments. Each year hundreds of objects from the collections are used by faculty, students, and outside scholars for research and exhibition development.
