  1. Hi everyone,

    I would like to hear from other museums that have started planning for the 50-year anniversary of the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake. Our museum has just started discussions with the city on ways to commemorate this event. Please contact me off-list at curator@valdezmuseum.org – I look forward to seeing what other institutions are up to.

  2. Hello All,

    I would like to ask for everyone’s help in completing a statewide compensation survey for museum staff. The survey is anonymous, and I will share the results once it is completed.


    Thank you!

  3. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!

  4. I would like to start a traveling exhibits program for the small museums of the state, made from exhibits each of us have created for our museum that might have a broader appeal. I was thinking the shows would be designed for smaller galleries and would rent for $500 plus one-way shipping. Does anyone else want to help me organize this program? I see it as a huge boon for all of us, helping to spread our resources, make a little income (perhaps), and market our wonderful museum community. Each museum would hold their own exhibits, but Museums Alaska would be a central web site where the exhibits could be advertised and scheduled/ordered. What do you think?

  5. Hello Alaska Museums –
    I am currently working on a traveling museum exhibit titled “Talkeetna Mountains / Cretaceous Oceans.” The exhibit features recent ancient marine reptile discoveries from the Talkeetna Mountains made last summer by UAF. I have just completed a 32ft oil on canvas mural as well as a life reconstruction of an elasmosaurs head and neck portion to go with. I need help finding funding or a permanant home for these parts of the exhibit to help fund the rest. Any help / suggestions / or recomendations would be outstanding!

    More photos, information and portfolio available upon request.
