Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum

The museum is located on the main floor of Hubbard Hall on the Bowdoin College campus. 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. We also continue to purchase contemporary art and crafts from across the Arctic.
