Permanent Collection

The Gregg Museum’s collection of more than 34,000 objects includes major holdings in textiles and clothing, ceramics, folk and Native American art, photography, design and decorative arts. We also have the largest collection of outsider art in North Carolina.

The Gregg Museum believes in making art completely accessible. Whether you’re a professor, student or member of the general public, you can access our collection by request. For more information or to make an appointment, please contact the Gregg Museum’s curator of education, Zoe Starling, at 919-513-7244 or


The Gregg Museum Library

LibrarystephanieMembers of the NC State community and general public have access to the Gregg Museum Library, a selection of more than 3,000 books related to objects in our collection.

Because our books are kept in a shared meeting space, we ask that you make an appointment to access the library. Contact us at 919-515-3503 or to schedule a visit. The Gregg Museum library is not part of NC State’s library system, and books cannot be checked out.

Due to current construction underway for the new Gregg Museum at 1903 Hillsborough Street, and our upcoming office/collection move, we will be suspending library usage for the next few semesters. Please check our website in late Fall 2016 for updates.
