Access the Collections

The Oriental Institute Museum welcomes and encourages researchers to make use of its collections. We have a wide-ranging and rich collection of objects from the ancient Near East, as well as expansive photographic and document archives that are available for study, consultation, and publication. We make every effort to fulfill research and photo requests; however, access to some materials may be restricted under certain circumstances (such as but not limited to publication status, inaccessibility, time constraints, and object stability and fragility).
