RAMM cares for a wonderful and diverse collection consisting of over one million individual objects and specimens from all over the globe. It is divided into the following curatorial departments: antiquities; ethnography; natural history, decorative and fine arts.

The collections contain items of local, national and international importance, and many are of outstanding historical or cultural significance. The ethnography collection has achieved Designated Collection status and RAMM as a whole won the title Museum of the Year in 2012.
