Default Online museum collections

Hi all !

Has there ever been an attempt on this forum to compile every online museum collections containing vast or important ethnographic weapon collections ?

I personally use them a lot in my researches, and I think they are an extremely useful tool in our field.

However, I feel like they are underexploited, and that some are downright obscure and unknown from the general collector (I personally discover new ones every weeks). A thread where we compile them to help others in their research would thus be rather helpful in my opinion.

Hi Kubur,

Just trying to make our research endeavours easier


Thanks to everyone !

I didn't expect the thread to catch on so quickly and I fear I don't have much to contribute myself after such great suggestions !

I do recommend the Quai Branly (of course), huge collection, but the photographic archives are maybe even more interesting !

The British museum one is also very good with some rare pieces, and is surprisingly not talked about a lot.

The SMB database contains some rare weapons from Cameroon which might be useful to people studying the area.


I will add this portal (German) : https://kulturerbe.niedersachsen.de/start/

The Peabody Museum collections : https://pmem.unix.fas.harvard.edu:8443/peabody/

The American Museum of Natural History (very clear website with a lot of interesting pieces !) : https://anthro.amnh.org/collections

The Welt Museum Wien : https://www.weltmuseumwien.at/en/onlinecollection/


If I think of (or find) more I will add them !
