Collections

SF State possesses an outstanding museum collection of several thousand objects from Oceania, Egypt, Asia, North America and Africa, collected as early as the 1880s. The new Global Museum was created by the University to serve as a collections stewardship and exhibition hub for the SF State and surrounding community.

The Global Museum collection includes objects from the Sutro Egyptian Collection, which in the past was associated with both the Department of Classics and the Museum Studies Program at SF State, and objects from the collections of the former Treganza Anthropology Collection, which for many years was associated with the Department of Anthropology.

A new content management system is currently under development with the DIVA Team in Academic Technology, which will soon allow visitors to access images and information about the Global Museum's collections online. Stay tuned!
