The Holland Museum is thrilled to announce a portion of the collections are now available to the public through our website.
Dedicated volunteers and staff have worked to make artifacts and archives accessible to the community online. The computer database will allow researchers from around the world and around town the opportunity to search for items including photos and information without traveling to the Museum.
Rick Jenkins, Museum Registrar, says, “The biggest advantage of having our collection online is access. We want people of all ages to explore our collection. My hope is that people will learn about us through our collection and will come to see the role we play in the community.”
The Holland Museum’s collection is represented by more than 90,000 artifacts and archival materials that includes everything from art, books, coins, dolls, stamps and quilts. The collection contains the stories (known as provenance) of thousands of area residents, business, organizations, churches and schools.
The current online database has about 3,000 records in 35 categories. That number will continue to grow as new records are added on a regular basis.
