Museum of Art Museum of Art


As a teaching museum, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art offers educational resources for Bowdoin College students and faculty, scholars anywhere in the world, and learners of all ages. 

Our encyclopedic collection of over 20,000 artworks is online for academic research or close study, as well as pleasurable browsing.

 Whatever your perspective, historical, cultural, or scientific, the Museum collections offer a laboratory for creativity for all.

Bowdoin College classes from all disciplines work with museum curators to study original art objects pertinent to their subject. We also welcome proposals from Bowdoin faculty and students to curate exhibitions for the Becker Gallery, dedicated to topical and timely shows generated by classes.
