 JUNEAU- The Alaska State Museum has received a grant of nearly $80,000 to cover the cost of packing up and vacating the current museum building.

A new State Libraries, Archives and Museum building is being constructed in Juneau. Plans call for a new facility to be open in 2016.
Scott Carrlee is curator of museum services. He says the grant, from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, will cover costs for 27 individuals from 12 Alaska museums and cultural centers to help move the 32,000-piece collection.
He says work on boxing collections will begin Oct. 7 and continue in phases.
Items will be moved to a climate-controlled storage vault currently under construction over about six weeks next year.
