Open to the public year round, the Juneau-Douglas City Museum features a variety of exhibits relating to local history, art and culture including a 500-700 year old basketry-style fish trap and full scale replica, a 5x7 topographical map of Juneau, and comprehensive video, Juneau: City Built on Gold. In addition to its exhibits, the City Museum offers community programming throughout the fall and winter, various classes and workshops, educational tours and the Juneau History Grant. With our award winning online archive "Digital Bob" and "Historic Structures Database", we are continuing to expand our role as a resource for local history research and historic preservation. The Museum gift shop features local arts and crafts, books by local writers, trail guides and old fashioned toys. During the summer season the Museum offers historic downtown walking tours at 1:30pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Contact the Museum for more information.
