DESCRIPTION

The collections of the Alaska State Museums (Alaska State Museum and Sheldon Jackson Museum) represent the diverse cultures and rich historical record of a large geographic area. The museums' broad mandate is to collect, preserve and interpret the state’s human and natural history. The museums have more than 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. Items from daily life as well as ceremonial objects and archaeological material represent all major cultural groups.
