The collections extend beyond traditional museum categories (which are largely related to moveable, tangible cultural resources) to encompass all the categories listed here and including the buildings that, in turn, are distinguished by interrelated categories, many specific to the interiors.

This collections listing introduces two new, complementary categories: architectural fragments and products and samples.

Other related collection categories critical to stewardship of buildings include: Organizational records, archives pertinent to the structures, objects (including interior furnishings and decorative arts), art, textiles (including floor and wall treatments), and landscapes and gardens (which impact a building's performance).
