The University of Alaska Museum of the North is an important resource for university students. Students may visit the museum throughout the year at no cost simply by showing their Polar Express card at the admissions desk, and many university faculty incorporate museum exhibits into their courses.
In addition, the museum’s research collections are used by faculty curators in classes and are also available for students conducting original research on Alaska’s dynamic environments and cultural systems. The museum’s 1.4 million artifacts and specimens are organized into collections for archaeology, birds, earth sciences, ethnology, fine arts, fish, insects, mammals and plants. The collections also include more than 400 hours of film and video housed in the Alaska Center for Documentary Film.
