Art Museums

Below is a resource list of art museums around the United States. When we first started, our focus was on museums interested in collecting fine art photography. However, much has changed over the years and today, most art museums are open to the idea and to the importance of collecting photography. Therefore, we're now listing as many art museums as we can, including major art institutions as well as small art museums.

We're in the process of updating the list. The International Museums are still in need of updating. If you happen to notice a museum link that is not working or a missing art museum please let us know.
