Mission Statement

The Juneau-Douglas City Museum fosters among its diverse audiences an awareness of Juneau's cultural heritage, values and community memory so we may draw strength and perspective from the past, inspire learning, and find purpose for the future. As a public trust, we collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit those materials that document the cultures and history of the Juneau and Douglas area.

 

About Our Building

The Juneau-Douglas City Museum resides in the Veterans Memorial Building which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 7, 2006. Completed in 1951, the building was the first major community project initiated by Juneau residents and housed the Juneau Memorial Library until the mid 1980s when the library outgrew the space and the City Museum took up residence. The building was also the site of the July 4th 1959 Statehood Ceremony where the 49-star flag was first flown in Alaska and still flies today. Protocol for the flags at this historic site is handled by Auke Bay Post 25 American Legion members. Click here for more information about the Veterans Memorial Building.
