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 !

a museum in Florence, with many European weapons and armor, but also an interesting collection of weapons and armor from the Middle East, India and Japan

Online weapons collections that I use.

The Royal Armouries - a very broad collection including ethnographic weapons.

https://collections.royalarmouries.org/#/objects

The Royal Collection - primarily European, but with a very fine collection of Indian arms and armour.

https://www.rct.uk/collection/search#/page/1

The phenomenal Wallace Collection - both European and Oriental/Asian collections.

https://wallacelive.wallacecollectio...unction=search

The Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna - seems primarily to have the European weapons digitally catalogued, though the collection has a fair selection of high quality Indo-Persian items.

https://www.khm.at/en/visit/collecti...-masterpieces/

The V&A Museum - unhelpfully a lot of the collection is not yet photographed, but the items are described in detail, and you can request pictures of anything of interest.

https://collections.vam.ac.uk/search...ffset=0&slug=0

The Ashmolean Museum Oxford - search by terms. A broad mix of items.

https://collections.ashmolean.org/co...sort_order/asc

National Museum of Korea - search by terms. Primarily Korean weaponry.

https://www.museum.go.kr/site/eng/relic/search/list

The State Hermitage Museum - a mixed collection of high quality European and Indo-Persian items, with a scattering of ethnographic pieces.

https://www.hermitagemuseum.org/wps/portal/hermitage/woa-search/!ut/p/z1/nZFha8IwEIZ_iz9gJOlqox-PbE1tJ7GLMWu-SHTVFddWdFj275eKA-mwwu7LcfC-z73HIYPekKnsqdjar6Ku7KebMxMsBUBAHhmOcehjDC8ypUAlwQ lF-izANwowMtd-wWdjDAkhgYjCaah-_T0C079_gQwy5L38bvsxt4f1B8p0bvd1dezC_7pNf3bdQq8JPO RPGPg4ZSNfeHxEugIxSSgGMR9GQiyYx_yLoGdJ5kLSmyGlh_Sp yBukqvpQuo_IlqjZdJmq51fnPd_uevf26C6Z_JMc3_vJvlRqtx pu5OQhi7ezppnDZgeDwQ-jIfTo/dz/d5/L2dBISEvZ0FBIS9nQSEh/?1dmy=#meta_woa_category_main=Weapons%2C%20Armor&s earch=Weapons&meta_authoring_template=WOA

Of course the amazing Metropolitan Museum collection.

Not ethnographic, but perhaps still of interest - the UK National Army Museum.
