The Juneau History Grant is Open
The Juneau History Grant (JHG) is now open! The annual due date for applications is October 1st. Any person, or group of persons, with a good idea for preserving or sharing Juneau’s history and/or culture who has the time and energy to follow it through to completion is encouraged to apply for a Juneau History Grant for funding to support some of the expenses of their project. 

JHG projects are typically funded at the $400-$1200 level; however the committee will consider all worthy projects within its ability to subsidize. The Juneau History Grant is a collaborative program of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, The Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, and the Juneau Community Foundation.

Echoes of War: Unangax̂ Internment during WWII

Our continuing exhibit, Echoes of War: Unangax̂ Internment during WWII, brings attention to the history of the Unangax̂ internment camps in Southeast, Alaska. It is the story of the people of St. Paul and St. George (the Pribilof Islands) who experienced internment in Southeast Alaska at Funter Bay from June 1942 to May 1944, and their subsequent return home to the Pribilof Islands. Echoes of War is currently on display in the Murray Gallery.
