Thoroughly enjoyed the native artifacts, clothing and hunting implements that are very thoughtfully displayed. The drawers contain a wealth of items that enhance the experience.

This museum is small, but packed with Native Alaska cultural objects. There are exhibits in drawers and on the walls above the display cases. The collection is impressive and well worth exploring.

Nicely organized, good explanations. Very nice exhibitions. Many interesting artifacts. Don't forget to look up at the items suspended from the ceiling.

This museum is an absolute must if you happen to make it to Sitka. The museum is small but it is absolutely stocked with the most impressive Native art and artifacts. We were blown away with privately donated artifacts. We were there for an hour and could have stayed longer. Artifacts are presented in large display cases and pull out drawers.

Amazing collection of Native American treasures, a large collection, well worth the visit, make sure to open all of the drawers so you don’t miss a good portion of the collection.

Diverse collection of native artifacts collected by missionary Sheldon Jackson during his travels up and down the west coast of Alaska from the many different tribes, all well displayed and extensive.

This museum is not small at all if you take the time to really look around- in the center, 3 drawers open under each display case! Absolute treasures inside! Things you may have read about in books- now you get to see these native craft items and tools. Truly amazing what they have in the Sheldon Jackson museum. I bought a membership so I could go more than once during my 2 week stay in Sitka.

This is a small museum packed with interesting and intriguing items. There were many things here we did not see in any other museums in Alaska. Could have spent more time here.

Very nice, small museum with an extensive collection of native and local history artifacts. I recommend this place if you are visiting on a cruise. Very reasonable admission charge. Now a state operated museum. Well done!
Requires an hour or two, at most.
