Manage Your Collection with Less Effort, Better Results

Let your collection shine with the world’s leading collections management software. TMS delivers the best in flexibility, support and functionality, helping institutions realize their full potential.



800+ Clients Have It; You Can Have It Too

Whether a collection is large or small, one thing remains the same: our clients love our software and support. But don’t take our word for it; here’s what they have to say.

“TMS and eMuseum are the foundation of the management of our collection. With the help of TMS, we can extend our information to the public and internal staff alike.”

– Lenn Nunn, Head of Information Systems, National Gallery, London

“Gallery Systems understood our vision which was for eMuseum to be seamlessly integrated into our website; the result was exactly that.”
- Sophie Meyers, Collections Project Manager, Delaware Art Museum
“Throughout the process of fully utilizing TMS, Gallery Systems has been very helpful and quick to respond to questions. They are always easy to talk to.”
- Graeme Housego, Collections Assistant, The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology
“Its flexibility and ease of use make EmbARK the perfect collections management tool for us.”
- Marianne Weldon, Collections Manager, Bryn Mawr College
“TMS and eMuseum provides a dynamic platform, which enables us to have art registration and communication as one procedure.”
- Morten Nybo, Project Manager, Danish Agency for Culture
“We chose TMS because it was the most robust, intuitive, and responsive of the collections management systems we researched. It has benefited our institution by allowing us to add, track, and report on collection information in ways that it was impossible to do with our previous database.”
- Jennifer Day, Registrar, Indian Arts Research Center
“Working with Gallery Systems’ web team on the Seattle Art Museum’s Chinese Painting and Calligraphy OSCI project meant having highly knowledgeable support and leadership directly from architects of our database systems…”
- Michelle Miller, Registrar for the Collection, Seattle Art Museum
“TMS is used by so many major museums. Meeting the needs of those museums, as Gallery Systems has done, has made the product more flexible and we, as a smaller organization, have been the beneficiaries.”
- Richard Grant , Executive Director, The Richard Diebenkorn Foundation
“If I leave a desperate call on a Sunday evening with Gallery Systems, I’m likely to get a call back from the technical support group very quickly. That has been consistent throughout our 21-year relationship. All the staff have been enormously helpful.”
- Richard Grant , Executive Director, The Richard Diebenkorn Foundation
“Increasing accessibility to the collection, while at the same time reducing handling and light exposure of the objects, couldn’t have been achieved without these new technologies and our partnership with Gallery Systems.”
- Rachel Tassone, Associate Registrar, Williams College Museum of Art
“We are very happy with the remotely hosted TMS. For us the connection is speedier than our locally hosted TMS was. That’s nice of course, but the real advantages is that Gallery Systems does backups, they do upgrades and we can have the upgrades whenever it’s convenient for us.”
- Hilde Bøe, Digital Collection Manager, Munch Museum
“Gallery Systems delivers a fantastic product, but what really sells me is their unstinting technical support. As well, their ongoing innovation and interest in their clients’ needs come together to make TMS the best product it can be.”
- Christine Droll, Registrar, Database & Collections, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
“I’m always proud to tell a colleague that we use TMS for our catalogue raisonné. TMS makes me feel confident that we have a system that is reliable, which we don’t have to worry about. It has made my job a lot easier.”
- Andrea Liguori, Managing Director, The Richard Diebenkorn Foundation
