Permanent Exhibits

The Alutiiq Museum's permanent exhibits tell the story of the Alutiiq people - from the distant past, through historic times, to the present day. Archaeological discoveries, oral histories, photographs, ethnographic objects and contemporary artwork fill displays on cultural history, villages, housing, subsistence practices, the cycle of life, women’s work, men’s work, and ceremonial culture. An interactive computer kiosk provides access to language activities. There is also a video viewing area.

Wamwik - A Place to Play

Children are invited to explore with their hands in the Alutiiq Museum's Wamwik - a place to play. This replica of a traditional house transports our youngest visitors into the Alutiiq world with dress up clothing, Alutiiq-themed toys, puzzles, and plush animal puppets. Developed with generous assistance from the Alaska State Museum Grant in Aid program.

Finding Our Balance

Available for Loan

What do the Alutiiq, the Anishnabae M’Chigeeng, the Muscogee Creek, Paiute-Shoshone, Pyramid Lake Paiute, the Rosebud Sioux, the Seminole, and the Tohono O’odham have in common?  A great deal.  In 2006, members of these tribes worked together to create a traveling exhibit that highlights shared experiences under the direction of the National Museum of the American Indian.  A short movie tells the story of the project.  Learn about the development of this exhibit at the National Museum of the American Indian website.
