Half a million years of human history, at your fingertips.
The Logan Museum houses over 350,000 archaeological and ethnographic objects from 123 countries. These collections derive from more than 480 cultural groups spanning half a million years of human history. The museum’s goal is to make this material accessible online, but this goal will take several years to accomplish. Collections will continue to be launched as additional objects are digitized and prepared for online publication.
Information on the objects represented in these digital collections derives from catalog records, which in some cases may be incomplete or inaccurate. Please contact the curator for access to the collections or to comment about record content. Information about rights and reproductions is available online.
Digitization of the Logan Museum’s collections has been made possible by grants from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Freeman Foundation.
