My Collections is an ongoing, collaborative, educational exhibition program inviting the community to participate in exhibiting their own personal collections at the University of Iowa Pentacrest Museums. Collecting doesn't only happen in museums, but we're the perfect place to showcase your experience with this fascinating, shared human proclivity. 

My Collections features two unique collectors and their personal collection each fall and spring semester.  New exhibits will be featured here for virtual public access and on display in the Museum of Natural History.
