Collection Map & Database

 

Here, you can find out about all known physical collections of Muybridge's work housed in cultural organisations around the world; as well as selected collections of rare books published by Muybridge during his lifetime.


For each institution on our database, we include introductory information on collections items, location, rights and reproductions, opening hours and accessibility to Muybridge works; as well as curatorial staff contact details to help with your specific research questions.


You can filter your search geographically to find organisations near you, or descriptively using the drop down menu to locate particular types of collections items which most fit your interests. You can even see where these collections are housed on a local or world map.
