The Juneau-Douglas City Museum is located at the corner of 4th and Main, opposite the Alaska State Capitol in Juneau, Alaska. It occupies a building which was built in 1950-51 to house the Juneau Memorial Library. It is a two-story Classical Revival structure built out of concrete with red marble trim elements. A gable-roofed projecting section at the center of the long wall provides the main entrance, which is recessed in an opening the full height to the pediment. This projecting section is flanked by banks of five metal-framed awning windows. The northeast facade has a gable pediment similar to that of the entry projection, below which is a large rectangular window, behind which a stained glass decoration has been installed. The building served the city as its library until the 1980s, at which time it was repurposed to house the city museum.For Juneau-Douglas City Museum and beyond, use our Juneau trip planner to get the most from your Juneau vacation.

A fairly decent museum with nice displays although small it was informative about Juno's history. Parking at the Museum is a problem like most of Juneau, but if you like museums with local history this is worth going to.
Small museum. Friendly staff. They know Juneau's history. They will tell you every single detail about it. Loved the experience
Cute small museum way up on the hill. Not a Nessesary attraction but cute and fun.
Perfectly lovely historical museum of the city. Plenty to read, a couple things to touch, fantastic local souvenirs to purchase.
Thank you for such a wonderful experience with my little. I love the true history shared and preserved :)
