Sheldon Jackson Museum

(907) 747.8981

If there were a museum for museums, the Sheldon Jackson Museum in Sitka would be part of the collection. It is the oldest museum in Alaska and is located in the first concrete building in the state. Construction began in 1895 and it has been occupied since 1897. The building was placed on the National Historical Register in 1972. The Sheldon Jackson Museum has a unique Alaska Native ethnographic collection.

Sitka Summer Music Festival

Where Words Fail, Music Speaks! The Festival holds three annual chamber music series – the Sitka Summer Music Festival in June in Sitka, and the Autumn and Winter Alaska Airlines Classics in Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Sitka.  In collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Festival musicians present touring concerts in more remote and underserved areas of the state in conjunction with the summer and winter series.
