Welcome to the Robert Hull Fleming Museum - a cultural treasure prized by Vermonters and visitors for more than 70 years. The Fleming Museum is located on the campus of the University of Vermont, which, chartered in 1791, is one of the nation's oldest universities.
When the Museum opened in 1931, it was hailed as "a practical place of learning -- a vibrant, ongoing educational institution for both children and adults." Today, the Museum houses Vermont's most comprehensive collection of art and anthropology. It presents exhibitions of contemporary and historic art from around the world.
With more than 20,000 objects that span the history of civilization, the Fleming Museum's collection offers a unique opportunity to study visual cultures from early Mesopotamia through contemporary America. The breadth of the collections supports our mission of encouraging visitors to understand, appreciate, and interpret our worldwide cultural heritage. Art and artifacts from Ancient Egypt, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas are presented in our permanent collection galleries as well as in changing exhibitions.
