MOA’s Online Collections
Online Collections Portal
With the financial support of the Canadian Government through the Museums Assistance Program, the MOA is excited to introduce a new Collections Management System. Featuring thousands of items from collections held in the care of the MOA, our Online Collections Portal is a searchable tool featuring a wide range of content.
Our goal is to make collections more accessible and available to the public while sharing knowledge, research, and cultural understanding. The public search portal has separate searches for Objects (e.g. archaeological, ethnographic and art materials), Records (e.g. library books and maps), as well as a new ability to search for archaeological Sites represented in the collections. Two advanced searches, one combining objects and records and the other focused on sites are also available.
We have also added a navigation page to answer questions about how to use the search!
EXPERIENCE THE COLLECTION FROM ANYWHERE
The online database is constantly expanding with new records being added regularly. The information on some records may be incomplete and is subject to change in accordance with future research. History is just a click away!
