Museum Artifacts and Specimens

Artifacts and specimens in the collections are divided into six disciplines, some of which include sub-disciplines and areas of concentration. The museum's scope of collecting includes type specimens and objects collected or related to lands, people or events within the park boundaries. Items were collected in conjunction with archeological excavations, permitted scientific studies, voucher acquisitions, through transfer and by donation. Object and specimen retention is based on resource protection, education, research and interpretation values.
