Searching through the collections of the Moluccan Historical Museum (former: Museum Maluku)


On this site you will be able to search through the collections of the Moluccan Historical Museum (former: Museum Maluku). Please click on the top-left of the menubar on ‘Search’. You will then arrive on the ‘Basic Search’ page where you can type a word, which search through all the collections simultaneously. In the menu on the left, you can also select for ‘Advanced Search’ (on each collection type or subject) or ‘Professional Search’ (Boolean).

The collections are divided into ‘Library Catalogue’ and ‘Museum Collections’. The Library Catalogue allows you to search for books, journals, articles and DVDs. On the other side, the Museum Collections include objects, images (photos), database (major events), archives, and audiovisual records (descriptions of radio and tv broadcasts). It is possible to open pdf files of original records in the reading room of the museum. The registration, disclosure and linking of pdf files and photos are an ongoing process. Unfortunately, at this moment the metadata are only available in Dutch.
