Facilities / Policies
Caring for the objects of Alutiiq heritage is a central part of the Alutiiq Museum’s mission. Our facilities include a laboratory where objects can be cleaned, conserved, and studied, and a 1,600 sq. ft. climate controlled collections room that provides safe, professional storage, and a stone objects storage room.

Three documents govern the museum's collections - a Collections Policy, a Collections Plan, and Guidelines for the Spiritual Care of Objects. Together, these documents reflect the museum's desire to unite Alutiiq values with the best practices of museum science to provide exception collections care.
