Digital Resources and Publications

We love visitors to the museum—whether you’re in town for the afternoon, or looking for a quiet place to study for finals. But you don’t have to be on campus to take advantage of our many resources.

Online Collections

Explore the Museum's entire permanent collection (over 20,000 objects) online. The online database features new and expanded search capabilities, with over half of all entries accompanied by images.

Publication Archive

Beginning in the nineteenth century and continuing today, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art engages in an active and varied publishing program. Museum publications are available through the Digital Commons at the Bowdoin College Library, for both reading on-line and downloading. Explore the collections, exhibitions, and history of the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, one of the earliest academic art museums in the country.

Cratylus

Cratylus is a mobile application that gamifies the tagging of works in the Bowdoin College Museum of Art which will make our collections more searchable and accessible.
