Each year, the Tongass Historical Museum produces three-to-four changing exhibits in the Museumís small gallery space. Exhibit themes include local history, art, photography, and Native Alaskan culture. Community-based exhibits, illuminating the interests and pastimes of local residents and drawing on local collections, are also presented. Occasionally, traveling exhibits produced by other institutions are featured. A small permanent exhibit, The First People, includes Native Alaskan artifacts from the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian cultures, ranging from pre-contact stone tools to contemporary Northwest Coast art.
