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! « less

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.

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

Family-oriented and geared for all others as well. Welcoming staff who want nothing more than to spread good cheer and community. Thank you all for your never-tiring efforts to make Juneau the great place to live that it is.

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.

This is one of the biggest assets the Community of Juneau has, it warms the Heart to see Individuals so devoted to the Arts in such a relatively small community - regardless of being the capital city, Juneau is still quite small. This is one of the larger attractions in it. I encourage anyone coming to Juneau on a trip,... More

Now called the JACC and located right on Egan, our main artery, this is a showcase for our artists, musicians, actors, crafters, and spoken word spitters. It's a potpourri of talent, and you never know what will be on display out front or inside. Something is always happening.
