Campus Resources: What's Available


While some 124,000 people visit the University of Alaska Museum each year, the museum is more than a place to look at interesting objects. The museum is also a campus resource and research center, and the staff conducts field work, teaches university courses and publishes reports.

Resources at the museum include the aquatic, archaeological, art, bird, ethnographic, geology, herbarium and mammal collections, the Alaska Native Heritage Film Center and the Alaska Quaternary Center.

Objects from the collections are used for research, and demonstration and comparative studies in classrooms and laboratories. For more information, contact the University of Alaska Museum, (907) 474-7505.
