Museum Collection Management Software

Setting (Time & Place): Now, San Francisco, Fictional Museum of Archeological History with a huge 1st floor display area (offices of working archeologists on the 2nd floor). This museum has ties to the SF State and many other institutions as well.

Search Engine and key words used: Google, Museum software. While I found lots of it, there's nothing to indicate what software a museum would prefer. If I have a choice, it's on a mac (like ARTchive found at http://www.husk.com/info.html), but I need to know what would be appropriate for a large museum in a large city to use for real and that's not found at their web pages, 'cause they all want to sell :>.

Question: what would be appropriate for a large museum in a large city to use for Collection Management? Assume good funding, so more recent software choices are available.

Any other relevant info: Not that I can think of. This is the best answer I came up with for my search -- but I need opinions of folks in the field as to which software can actually do the job.

Edit: Wow -- GREAT info! Thanks!
