About the Collection

The Holland Museum's mission: Preserving Our Past, Imagining Our Future. By collecting, preserving and communicating what has been, we focus the power of the past to shape the future.

Our collection of "what has been" is represented by more than 100,000 artifacts and archival materials that includes everything from art, books and coins to dolls, stamps and quilts. This collection contains the stories, known as provenance, of thousands of area residents, businesses, organizations, churches and schools.

We continue to collect the stories not yet represented in our collection. Please let us know if your story is absent. We would love to correct that error.
