Juneau-Douglas museum reopens

The Juneau-Douglas City Museum reopened June 2 after a monthlong closure to replace the building's heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.

While work is expected to continue throughout the summer, the rest of the project will happen in the building's basement, allowing the galleries to reopen to the public.

Summer walking tours will take place Tuesday through Thursday at 1:30 p.m. through the end of September, and a new children's storytime opens at 11 a.m. on Tuesdays.

Two special summer exhibits will be on display - The Empty Chair: The Forced Removal and Resettlement of Juneau's Japanese Community, 1941-1951 and Outside My Window, an exhibition of quilts that reflect life lived in the City and Borough of Juneau.

Also worth a visit are their continuing exhibits which include the Montana Creek Fish Trap, the digital stories kiosks found in the Politics, Personalities & Power gallery, and hands-on mining displays.
