Universities all over the world have incredible collections, museums, botanic gardens, anatomical theatres, laboratories, archives, libraries and monuments. The cultural heritage of universities includes all imaginable disciplines, from science and technology to history and archaeology, and from the life sciences to architecture. Some universities are listed as UNESCO World Heritage.

This website, hosted by UMAC, allows you to explore the wonderful and rich world of university museums and collections.

A good place to start exploring is the UMAC Worldwide Database of University Museums and Collections, updated on a daily basis, and where these images were taken from.

If you are a university museum professional or a researcher, you can find in this website a variety of resources, tools and networks to expand your study and practice. Find out more about us and join as a member!
