“Excellent Displays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

A museum established by a pioneer who saw the value in preserving native Alaskan heritage before it was completely engulfed by European settlement. Interactive displays interest children.

“A great place to see Native Alaskan Artifacts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Unfortunately we only had a short time to see this wonderful Museum. The Jackson Museum is full of Native Alaskan artifacts. You could spend hours looking at the collection. Hint: Make sure you open the drawers in the display cases.

“All You Need to Know About Native Alaskans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

You could spend a day here and not see it all. This is a collection of artifacts from native Alaskan tribes. Tlingit, Eskimos, Aleuts etc.
I was totally amazed at the tools for fishing and everyday life that they developed. Be sure to open the drawers under the displays.

“Superb collection.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

An extensive and high quality collection of native artifacts arranged effectively, by region and tribe. Some very unusual items. Local native artist doing beadwork was more than happy to talk about her culture, artwork, life. A lot to take in. Might require two visits to do it justice.

“Sheldon Jackson Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Outstanding collection of Native Alaskan material. Every bit as good as the Alaska Native heritage Center in Anchorage as far as artifacts go.
