The view beginning with the ride up is spectacular! Local Native young people provide some history & Juneau flavor. The restaurant isn't worth the money but have an Alaskan Amber & enjoy the sights! Get close to some local wildlife at the Raptor Center's display & hike up to the Cross if the weather cooperates!

As a local, this is the first of two of the best attractions in Juneau in my opinion. Although the tram ride, visitor center and restaurant are great, the alpine trails are the highlight, specifically the trail to the top of the mountain. The lower views on the loop trail are really worth the walk but if you can spend... More

Easy to get to from downtown Juneau it takes you by tram to Mt Roberts where you can sit on a bench and enjoy the views. You can stay 10 minutes or for hours hiking the trails. They have a restaraunt where sometimes you can see a bear wandering outside. A nice place to take a break.

You don't want to miss Mount Roberts Tramway, especially on a clear day. A bald eagle, free Native video, Hiking Trails, and Scenic Views.

We took the tram up to the museums. Very interesting. We went to see the movie that was in the theatre. Also, went to the store where there were two men working on a totem pole. It was interesting watching them carve the totem pole. They offered some very interesting history about their tribe and the totem pole history. This... More

It was about a five minute walk from our Princess cruise ship to the tramway. This was such a neat thing to do while in Juneau. Loved the view from up top. They had a nice little area up top also like nature trails, an eagle, and a gift shop. But I liked the views and the fun short ride... More

Yes the tram ride is expensive & overpriced but you are in Alaska and everything here is expensive. This was my first stop after getting off the ship. There was no line and there were only 5 people in my tram so everyone had plenty of room to move from one side to the other to get pictures. The ticket... More

Once at the top there is a good hiking trail with labels on various vegetation, a great teaching tool, if one is interested. Needless to say the view is awesome. We were there in June and still had quite a bit of snow in places.

An adult ticket for the round trip 5 minute ride is $32.00. The view is great, but they pack you in like cattle so that it is impossible to get to the window and take pictures. Save your money. Nice video at the top.
