In the Worcester Art Museum Collections Search you will find a large and growing selection of objects from the Museum's encyclopedic holdings, from ancient cultures through modern and contemporary art, including many works rarely on view. What is currently represented in our Collection Search is only a fraction of our permanent collection. The output is constantly growing as record files are updated and objects are photographed in order to be ready for public display. In addition to viewing organized collections, you may do a simple keyword search, or explore a variety of advanced search options.
The Worcester Art Museum Library, founded in 1909 as a non-circulating bibliographic resource dedicated to the history of art, reflects the collection strengths of the Worcester Art Museum.
