Life-sized Fish Fact Panels in the new Fishing exhibit.
In the fall of 2016, our angling artifacts exhibit was taken down. We did so with the knowledge that we would be creating a new fishing exhibit. The new exhibit has combined the already existing Montana Creek Fish Trap exhibit with history about Tlingit fishing methods, recreational fishing in Juneau, and the commercial fishing industry. This exhibit will continue to be worked on throughout the summer, with a new case to display fishing artifacts, including a halibut hook, cannery labels, and Salmon Derby buttons, being installed mid-summer. The exhibit also has new life-sized “fish fact” fish panels for the five species of salmon, halibut, herring, and eulachon. Be sure to take a photo holding your favorite fish and share it with us on the Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/JuneauMuseumFriends/.
