The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum located in Brunswick, Maine was founded in 1967 at Bowdoin College, and the Arctic Studies Center was created in 1985. Artifacts in the Museum's collection include Peary and MacMillan's expedition equipment, Inuit art, films, archival papers, natural history specimens, and much more. The Museum's exhibitions now change approximately every two years to show as much of the collection as possible. Our next exhibit, "Animal Allies: Inuit Views of the Natural World," will open April 4, 2012. The museum is located on the main floor of Hubbard Hall on the Bowdoin College campus. Admission to the Museum is always free! Find us on Twitter at @arcticmuseum, and check out our photo blog at
