Museums - Upcoming Exhibits
In December 2015, the City Council voted unanimously to approve the conceptual design for the Centennial Building first floor renovation and corresponding construction funding. Our current temporary exhibit Then & Now will remain up through September 2016. This will allow staff the necessary time to prepare space for all of the artifacts from the Our Town and First Peoples that will be displaced when construction begins in October 2016. The main floor of the Centennial Building will be closed to the public during the construction from October 2016 to May 2017. Museum staff will still be available during this time by calling 225-5600.
Once renovated, the the Tongass Historical Musuem will feature over 3,400 square feet of permanent and temporary exhibit space, a flexible program space for tours and school groups as well as ADA-compliant and expanded restrooms.
