Mug Up: The Language of Work
Coming February 2022
The Alaska State Museum is partnering with the NN Cannery History Project on a project that celebrates the history and people involved in Alaska’s canned salmon industry. Called Mug Up after the cannery term for a coffee break, the exhibit will share the stories of Alaska’s forgotten cannery crews and showcase the artifacts and history of one of the Alaska’s most significant industries through the lens of the Alaska Packers Association <NN> Cannery.
