The Alaska State Museum is temporarily closed for in-person visits due to the public health emergency. Please check out our website with many virtual resources. Once we re-open please visit us at the Fr. Andrew P. Kashevaroff (APK) building in downtown Juneau, for a uniquely comprehensive view of Alaska's history and diverse cultures including fine art, mining, fishing, forestry, tourism, Russia-America, and World War II. Science-on-a-Sphere TM is a six-foot globe showing animated displays of planetary data. There is a children's room, with a climb-aboard replica of a sailing ship. Besides the regularly changing temporary exhibits, the special 2021 summer show is "The History of Northern Northwest Coast Weaving". Also, see the State Library and the State Archives with Alaskana collections, newspapers and magazines, WiFi, and more as well as a small café and gift store on site. Once we re-open our hours will likely be noon-4pm Tuesday through Saturday. Youth are free & active military and senior discounts.
