What Our Clients Say

“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
“One of the reasons we went with Gallery Systems was their commitment to us in helping develop the tools to support specialized features for an anthropology museum. TMS is comprehensive enough to let us capture all necessary data on each object. It gives us the flexibility to adapt the modules and fields so that they make the most sense to us, and makes searching our collection easier for staff, students and researchers.”
David DeBono Schafer, Senior Collections Manager, The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University

“Right now our collections staff are the Museum‘s TMS gurus. We enter the data, edit and clean it up, search for it, run reports, find hidden treasures, and conduct inventories, all with the help of TMS.”

Lindsey Richardson, Curator of Collections, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
“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

“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

“The collaboration and exchange between TMS users has been very useful, both locally and internationally with programs like Collective Imagination. Users of TMS organize conferences and workshops in order to keep members informed, support collaboration, and inspire the development of new ideas and projects.”

Margret Schild, Head of the Library, Theatermuseum + Filmmuseum, Düsseldorf
