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

We walked in without checking in and did a self guided tour. It was a little strange since our statehouse (Indiana) seems to be on lockdown with guards and sign in sheets, metal detectors, etc...We just wandered around and went in chambers, and up to the Governor's office. There was a lot of construction going on, so we didn't get... More

Free hourly tour if you need to get in out of the rain. The building is beautiful and the free tour includes access to many areas of the legislative chambers that are very interesting to see. Not entertaining enough for kids though.

The building may be unattractive (it was originally an office building for the Alaska Territory, never designed as a State Capitol, so no dome) but the tour is excellent. Of course, this depends on the tour guide's knowledge and enthusiasm. Our young guide, Evan Wood, was terrific, invited questions at every turn and proved to be a mine of unsanitized... More

I wanted to get to downtown Juneau and just take a peak at what was going on. We had a 3 hour layover on the Alaska Maritime Highway. As it turns out, the only way to get to Juneau from the AMH terminal is via a $35 (one way) taxi ride. Bus service or other normal tourist friendly service are... More
