“over 1.4 million artifacts & specimens”
The museum's research collections - 1.4 million artifacts and specimens - represent millions of years of biological diversity and thousands of years of cultural traditions in the North. The collections are organized into 10 disciplines (archaeology, birds, documentary film, earth sciences, ethnology/history, fine arts, fishes/marine invertebrates, insects, mammals, and plants) and serve as a valuable resource for research on climate change, genetics, contaminants and other issues facing Alaska and the circumpolar North. The museum is also the premier repository for artifacts and specimens collected on public lands in Alaska and a leader in northern natural and cultural history research.
A decent museum. Lots of culture, and amazing videos. It's fun to see what kind of research the univieristy is capable of. I never would have known
