The Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art, also known as RAFFMA, is an art museum of the California State University, San Bernardino main campus in San Bernardino, California.

RAFFMA's permanent collections consist of three distinct kinds of art: ancient, ceramic, and contemporary. A world-class collection of about 200 Ancient Egyptian artifacts and a smaller selection of Italian pottery and Asian ceramics are part of the museum's permanent holdings. Rotating shows feature artists from throughout the region and country. One gallery of the museum is dedicated to exhibiting the work of the school's own art students.

The museum celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2006 and received accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums in 2008. The museum is among the 4 percent of museums in the United States accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.[1][2]
