"Recreational Fishing" Label from new fishing exhibit
In the fall of 2016, our angling artifacts exhibit was taken down. Again, 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. Also coming this summer are 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/. This exhibit is in progress and will be complete by the end of June.
