Like most museums, our collections forge our essence. While we offer thematic exhibitions year round, we also maintain a substantial collection of art. Today there are more than 30,000 objects in our two collections, dating back to the 1600s. They are stored in five locations and professionally cataloged and preserved.
As with any museum, the Leslie-Lohman’s collections forms a major part of who we are. We maintain two separate collections—a Permanent Collection and a Study Collection—each stored and preserved in the same way, both devoted to honoring the Museum’s rich artistic and cultural heritage. It is our hope that these collections will reflect the entire LGBTQ experience. Today there are more than 30,000 objects in the Museum’s collections.
