As a San Bernardino County institution, the Museum holds its collections in public trust, available for access by qualified investigators. Use of Museum collections should be for legitimate research and educational purposes, which includes reasonable uses for artistic endeavors. The Anthropology collection may be accessed by representatives from Native American Tribes upon request, subject to the same procedures as research access. Investigators should recognize that the permanent collections are non-renewable, and that the County Museum has a fiduciary responsibility to maintain these collections. Theref ore, access to the collections will be at the discretion of the Division Curators and uses of the collection that cannot be suitably justified will not be allowed.

More information about the specific contents of each division's collections and their respective contact information can be found by either using the subnavigation to the left or the search function below.
