University Collections Facility

Museum CollectionsThe University Museum staff develop and maintain extensive collections totaling seven million objects in the fields of archeology, ethnography, geology, history, and zoology. The collections are generally available for exhibition, research, education, and loan and are housed at the University of Arkansas Collections Facility located at the University of Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station. 

University faculty may request loans of specimens for their classes or arrange to bring their classes to the University Collections Facility for a visit. Specimens and their associated documentation are available for comparative and research purposes by faculty, qualified students, and visiting scholars. 

The University Collections Facility fulfills its public service and outreach mission through community engagement and loans to other institutions for exhibits. Staff members provide consultation services to museums, interpretive tours for visiting groups, public information services, and talks in their area of expertise.
