The 200 acre campus houses over 600,000 artifacts in the Museum's permanent collections of anthropology, biology, geology, and fine arts.
The Fine Arts Collection numbers 3,536 works by important Native American and Anglo-American artists, an outstanding body notable for the large number that date from the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century. The collection includes 194 reproductions of murals that date to the period between 1300 and 1700 from the villages of Awatovi and Kawaika.
Two artist-specific collections are the 55 paintings and the only known sculpture carved by Mary-Russell Ferrell Colton, and 95 sculptures with a notable collection of plaster casts and bronze busts by Emory Kopta.
