An Energy-Efficient Climate Control System for the Juneau-Douglas City Museum

An implementation project to purchase and install a heating, humidity, and ventilation system to improve the preservation environment for a collection of art, artifacts, and historic documents and photographs relating to the history of the city of Juneau.

The Juneau-Douglas City Museum requests $300,000 from the National Endowment of Humanities, Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections to install a heating, humidity, and ventilation upgrade that will correct and stabilize internal temperature deficits in our historic building that houses our collections. Housed in the first library built by public funds in Alaska in 1951 as a territory of the United States, the Juneau-Douglas City Museum resides in a building listed on the national register of historic places for the official 49-star flag raising ceremony when Alaska achieved statehood in 1959. Since initial construction in 1951, this facility has had no upgrades to its heating system, and has no integrated heating, ventilation and air cooling. The Juneau-Douglas City Museum is the only Museum in Alaska dedicated to the city of Juneau’s art and history collection
