Alaska State Museum Collections Search – Searchable catalog of the Museum’s 28,000 plus 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 object name or id. Collection may also be browsed.
If you’re outside of Juneau, this is a decent way to preview the Museum’s holdings. Try searches on Tlingit, Athabascan, Aleut, Eskimo, Inuit, other Native Alaskan groups, gold and guns for some example holdings.
