Description: A bustling community center all year 'round, the Juneau Arts & Culture...
A bustling community center all year 'round, the Juneau Arts & Culture Center (locally known as "the JACC") is home to the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council Gallery featuring monthly exhibits by regional artists, the Lobby Shop, filled with unique local artwork, music, and books, and serves as a venue for performances, parties, meetings, and presentations. Built in 1959 as the National Guard Armory, the facility has been operated by the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council for the past four years as a place to showcase, support, and encourage the arts in Juneau. Visitors will find the unusual, the oddball, and the unexpected here. During the summers, the Sunday Market on the lawn offers produce and arts and crafts, during the winter expect to find everything from cabaret to miniature golf. You can even wave to your friends from the live web cam: Let them see you in Alaska!

The JACC offers a tremendous range of arts and entertainment events in Juneau both in terms of quality and quantity, truly rivaling the offerings of much larger cities. But here in Juneau you can sea kayak, hike a mountain and then take in a world class concert or a dance company from New York and dance to a local band... More

We love the Juneau Arts and Humanities gift shop, full of great books for children, gift cards, jewelry and calendars for adults and some breathtaking pieces by local artists on display - some on sale.

Nice little gift shop with unique local artists. Sure beats the crap sold near the docks. Hard to find local art there.

This proactive arts group doesn't think small nor content themselves with just idling along. From the wide array of arts experiences they connect with, to the historical and social aspects of the Juneau area, to making everything accessible to people from all walks of life, this Council does more than many you will find in so-called "major" cities — and...

This is a meeting place and there seem to be a lot of different activities. I stopped in at the gift shop which has really great locally made stuff and a friendly staff. My wallet left considerably lighter after finding some neat things for hard to find people.

This is a place that is easily missed. most of the art displayed here is local, then Alaskan and then from more distant places. Very much a local promotion place where members are kept informed of the variety of art on display. A visit can experience fin e art in many forms. Yoiu can experience art in oil painting, photography,... More

We were very pleased to find this gallery open on a Sunday. We learned that they're open every day. Wonderful display of local artists in the gallery and some very unique items for sale that we haven't seen anywhere else. Located down past the convention center and Goldbelt Hotel.

For a small city, the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council center (JAHC) hosts an amazing variety of artist exhibits, sells tickets to many local music and arts events, rents space, and is located downtown.

We noticed it on the way to the state museum so we dropped in and bought some enamel pins made by locals. Friendly staff and exhibits kept us there for awhile.
