“Excellent museum”

Sheldon Jackson Museum

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details

This small museum offers a vast collection of Indian artifacts, and cultural exhibitions. I was very impressed, not only with the size of the collection, but also the wonderful display of it all. Not to miss this in Sitka.

This was our second time at the museum & it was better than the first time. It is a must in Sitka of one wants to a lot of very good native items, etc.

An incredible selection of artifacts, mostly collected by Sheldon Jackson in the late 1800s. Be sure to look at the stuff in the drawers as well. Allow 2-3 hours.

We spent a short time in the museum as it was late and we were tired, but the amount of matierials on display was amazing. This provided the best documentation of materials illustrating native life at the turn of the century that we found in Sitka.

This museum contains a wealth of native items. Hard to believe that a rain suit can be made of fish skin. The museum is small but has wonderful displays and staff encourage you to look in the cabinets and are willing to discuss any of the items, skills, etc.
