The Alaska State Museum may be a museum piece itself.
The state Department of Education & Early Development, along with the State Historic Preservation Office, is seeking public comment on the historic aspects of the ongoing Library Archives Museum Project.
The current concept plan is to replace the museum building with a new facility that will incorporate the existing museum, as well as the library, currently located in the State Office Building, and the archives, currently in a separate building nearby.
The state is seeking comments on the historic aspects of the project, including options for mitigation of adverse effects that include the consideration of alternative project site locations. It did not say what those potential adverse impacts may be.
Additional project information can be found and comments may be submitted through www.alaskalamp.blogspot.com. The comment period closes January 5, 2011.
