|| Collecting is a passion fuelled
by a quest for knowledge. At the University of Alberta Museums, our past
and present are characterized by the people whose passion for discovery
has led them to explore the world, both locally and internationally.
Since the University's founding in 1908, over 17 million objects and
specimens have been collected in support of teaching, research and community
service. This has occurred primarily through the efforts of our researchers
- faculty, staff, students and volunteers - and the generosity of our
donors who share our passion for discovery.
