This resource is intended travelers to help find repositories of interest to them. Please try and maintain consistency of terms so the sorting will make sense!

Most museums have some of everything, of course; the Collection columns are meant to represent what the institutions's specialties are (e.g., the Walters in Baltimore has excellent Asian, Islamic, and Renaissance objects, but it is renowned for its medieval collection.) In other cases, the museum's collection may not be large in quantity, but is significant in some other way (e.g., the Domberg {Cathedral Museum} of Bamberg is not large, but has some very important pieces such as the Star Mantle of Henry II).
