Museums - Artifact of the Month

“Artifact” is a dynamic term that can describe a variety of materials: three-dimensional objects, photos, archives, books, fine art, and even oral histories. Essentially, artifacts are the tangible items we create and use every day.

When placed into context, artifacts tell stories about their makers and users, capture moments in time, symbolize values, convey emotions, and reflect cultural changes. We better understand our past by studying artifacts. To highlight our own local unique history, Ketchikan Museums features an “Artifact of the Month” from our exciting collection of artifacts.  We hope you enjoy these snapshots back in time!
