NBCUniversal Archives & Collections is the central reference source for historic information about NBCUniversal and our productions. We preserve and document our heritage by collecting and maintaining significant historical records, photographs and artifacts according to professional museum and archive standards.
We also preserve the history being made today by working with feature and television productions as well as the theme park and other businesses to document current activity. The information and assets curated by Archives & Collections is used to enrich the heritage of the company, promoting NBCUniversal internally and externally.
Our collections were recently featured in exhibits at the Imperial War Museum in London, the Haus der Geschichte Baden-Württemberg (State History Museum) in Stuttgart, Germany, and the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles.
Archives & Collections serves as an internal resource for the businesses of NBCUniversal and is not open to external research.
