Help shape the future of the Sheldon Jackson Museum as we develop an interpretive plan to help guide its development. The community is invited to share what you would like to see for the future of the museum.

There are many stories that can be told within this collection, and it is important to hear from visitors, artists, stakeholders, and the local and broader Alaska Native community about what they envision for the museum. If you cannot attend in person, please join us virtually on Zoom

The staff and board of the Sheldon Jackson Museum, along with museum exhibition planner and designer Sarah Asper-Smith of ExhibitAK in Juneau, are working on the interpretive plan for the museum. The plan contains core concepts, themes and audiences, sets goals and objectives, and establishes standards for exhibits and programing. It is used as a tool to guide design, content development, programing, public and administrative space requirements, as well as interior and exterior labels and signage standards.

The meeting will be held at the Sheldon Jackson Museum, located at 104 College Drive. Light snacks will be provided.

The museum was founded in 1888 to house an exceptional collection of Alaska Native ethnographic material gathered by Presbyterian missionary Rev. Dr. Sheldon Jackson, and was purchased by the State of Alaska in 1985.

For more information, please contact the museum at (907) 747-8981, email Jacqueline Fernandez-Hamberg, or visit ExhibitAK.
