Arctic Museum

The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum collection is built around material donated by Donald B. MacMillan during his long career as an arctic explorer and researcher. MacMillan gave the museum his unparalleled collection of over 5000 black and white photographs, as well as glass lantern and 35 mm slides, motion picture films, and objects he collected in Greenland, Labrador and Baffin Island. Since that time the museum collection has continued to grow. Photographs and motion picture film continue be an important aspect of the collection, as do historic Inuit artifacts.
