Welcome to Alele Museum and Public Library in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
Alele is a non-profit corporation dedicated to preserving the history and conserving the folk arts, traditional skills, historic accounts, oral literature and other traditions of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. The name Alele comes from the finely plaited baskets used in times past by Marshall Islanders to store valuable personal items.
Our goal is to to promote and preserve Marshallese culture and we organize various activities year-round. We also host the Bogan collection, and have a selection of deBrum photos, printed from glassplates dated circa 1900.Visit the museum
