Museum offering summer behind-the-scenes tours
The University of Alaska Museum of the North is offering behind-the-scenes tours to visitors this summer. Participants will tour the museum’s labs and work spaces, where collection managers and curators take care of 1.75 million specimens and artifacts.
The museum’s collections represent millions of years of biological diversity and thousands of years of cultural traditions in the North. Visitors can watch scientists, historians and artists who are working with the collections and ask about their research.
Behind-the-scenes tours are offered Tuesdays and Fridays at 2 p.m. There is no fee but visitors must show up in person to reserve a spot. The tours are recommended for ages 12 and up and will be available through the end of August. For more information, call 907-474-7505 or visit www.uaf.edu/museum.
