Alaska State Museum Database


Have you wanted to explore Alaskan Art but couldn’t make it to Juneau to visit the Alaska State Museum? Today’s State Agency Database highlight fixes that problem:

Alaska State Museum Collections – Searchable catalog of the Museum’s 32,000 cataloged objects including Alaska Native material, historic artifacts, works of art, and natural history specimens. Alaska Native material, amounting to more than 15,000 objects, is the most outstanding part of the collection. Database may be searched by subject, culture, description, object name, maker, location or history.
