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.

Tram takes you up from the cruise ship docks, above the tree line (1800) feet into the "alpine". There are miles of trails to hike, And, also at the top of the tram is the visitor center with restaurant, souvenir shop, movie theater showing fantastic short films on native culture and wildlife. The view below of Juneau, Gastineau Channel, the... More

As majestic as the nature is in and around Juneau, its most important building, the flat-roofed, six-story state capitol, is anything but. The same can be said of the city if you’re hoping to find much more than souvenir and jewelry stores within walking distance of the dock. For the non-acrophobic, the Mount Roberts Tramway ($16-$32) is right there. A... More

We were there on a rainy day so the views were not all that great and our long range views were limited by the clouds. We rode both ways and at $31 for the return trip we thought that it was expensive. When we got to the top all we could do is have a bit of a walk around... More
