The capitol is currently closed. Can take photos of the front and step into the foyer. Renovations should take two years. My sense is the capitol is very much like any administration building with some flourishes.

It's not open for tours cause it's under renovation! The hours were even listed on the one page downtown map. I think it's closed for 2 years. We did get to use the bathroom.

We were disappointed that we did not get to do a Capitol tour. This building is being renovated and there was very limited access. I don't know the expected completion date, but you should check before you plan to go.

It is under renovation. Very limited access. It does have a small give shop. Don't expect much. It is more like a normal office building. This is our 43 capitol and it is by far the most un-impressive.

Houses our State lawmakers. The Scottish Rite Temple next door was reconstructed into more office space with a sky bridge to join the two buildings. It is well done and a nice area.

The State Capitol offers a lot of information about Juneau and its founding. There are Native art works and beautiful relief sculptures of Juneau's history. The building is being renovated and lacks luster at this time but is well worth visiting. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Beautiful architecture. A bit different than I expected but it is a very nice building in the heart of downtown Juneau. Near the governor's mansion.

The guide did an excellent job of shortening the free capitol tour to half an hour so we had enough time to walk back to the cruise ship. In that I was in elementary school when Alaska became our 49th state, I thought it was fun to hear about the details and view the art work, artifacts, and photos pertaining... More
