Kits & Hands-on Objects
The museum has many kits and objects available to borrow for educational purposes.
Use hands-on objects to enhance your lessons and help your students explore culture,
science, art, and history.
Museum Kits contain specimens, artifacts, models and activities for a wide variety of ages. Kit materials are designed for hands-on learning and reflect the diversity of the UA Museum of the North’s research collections.
Kits are available during the academic year (August-May). During June and July, kits are not available for check out.
- For compact kits designed for homeschool use, please visit the Homeschool Kits page.
- Also visit our Virtual Museum page for activities and resources to explore at home!
The Museum Kit program is made possible in part by a grant from the Golden Heart Community Foundation, an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation.
