Subject Collections: What’s in the Museum?


If you’re interested in state-focused art and history, you might be interested in the Museum Collection Databases of the State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States project. This collection currently features museum databases from Alaska, Ohio and Pennsylvania. My favorite, naturally, is the Alaska one:

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.

If you know of a museum collection database not found on Museum Collections Databases page, please let us know in comments.
