Digitization Project
Over 400,000 students have benefited from learning about design through direct encounters with GMD collection objects over the course of the museum's history. Now, in addition to this hands-on experience, researchers around the world are able to access collection records of the over 34,000 objects and view photographs of approximately 7,500 of these objects through the digital database. In order to ensure that the digitization and photography project continues, we need your support. Help support the preservation of and access to our collection with a tax-deductible donation today.


General Support

GMD programming is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008, and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
