Very nice Museum - with lots of exhibits. Held our interest for couple of hours. Good museum for Alaska history.
While on a cruise ship vacation, we spent 90 minutes enjoying the state museum. It is relatively small, two floors, and encompasses galleries on the Alaska Natives, Natural History and the state's Political History. If you like museums I think that you'll find it a worthwhile attraction.
With a grandiose title of a "state" museum one would expect a resplendent display of the cultural and historic uniqueness of the 49th state.

We were on a cruise and wanted to get away from some of the regular touristy attractions and walk about the town a bit, and take in some culture of a different form.

This museum is smaller most but full of history, especially about the peoples of Southeast Alaska. There are many artifacts and documents to see plus some contemporary works. The contemporary works assure that the culture continues.

This is a wonderful museum - lots to see and a lot of information of Alaskan history. We spent at least 2 hours looking at everything. Very informative. This is a must see attraction in Juneau
Outstanding collection of Alaskan history and artifacts from native tribes as well as Russian occupation and gold rush history. Interesting wildlife exhibits. Well worth the walk from your cruise ship and the small admission fee.
Spent an hour here on a cruiseship stopever. Within easy walking distance to the cruiseship terminal. It is a smaller museum but very interesting. One display was of native weaving and that was lovely. Small gift shop, not much in it. Staff were nice and friendly.
Full of Alaskan history. From the beginning to current. Wildlife as well as human. A must see for history buffs.
