The funds kept in the Museum of America consist of the old collections of American Archaeology and Ethnography of the National Archaeological Museum that had earlier belonged to the Museum of Natural Sciences, as well as donations, deposits and purchases of new works. Its subject matter covers a lengthy period from American Prehistory to the present America, with special emphasis on pre-Columbian archeology, ethnography and colonial art.
