With over 90.000 objects, the Drents Museum collection is one of the larger collections in the Netherlands. In terms of size and quality, the Archaeology collection is one of the most important in Northwest Europe. Part of this collection is presented permanently and is often shown in international exhibitions.

The History of Drenthe collection illustrates the material culture of ordinary men and women living in Drenthe between 1750 and 1950. The Art 1885-1935 collection is regarded as one of the top five collections for this period in the Netherlands. Much work in this broad collection was donated by the estates of the artists through the Stichting Schone Kunsten (Fine Art Foundation), and this is unique for the Netherlands. Since the ING Collection donated 273 works in 2010, the Contemporary Realism collection is regarded as one of the most significant in the Netherlands.
