The Bob and Evangeline Atwood Alaska Resource Center is located on the museum's first floor across from the museum shop. The public is welcome to use our Paul G. Allen Family Foundation Reading Room to research the museum's collections, which include Alaska-related photographs, books, periodicals, and maps from the 18th century through today.
Reconstructing history through photographs and documents is a fascinating piece-by-piece adventure, and each new collection expands our ability to do that. The archives and book collections are carefully preserved and stored to ensure a long, useful life. To inquire about donating Alaska materials, call (907) 929-9236 regarding books and (907) 929-9234 regarding photographs and archive materials.
