“Good exhibits and information on culture and history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

The museum is a great place to get a broad overview of the history of Alaska, its regions, and the people that populate them. We spent about 1-1/2 hours browsing the exhibits. Admission was $7/pp for adults.

“Museam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We had done some tours in Juneau before, so this time we just went to the State Museum. It was pretty interesting if you like that sort of thing -- lots of history on pre-European, Russian and U.S. eras.

Excellent but a long walk to get there . Displays well laid out and if you want you can take the guided tour.

“Very Nice Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This is a great museum and not so overwhelming that you can't enjoy it in an hour or so. Also seemed to have hands-on activities for kids -- that I just walked by. The circular walk-up past a central diorama is great.

Wonderful presentations of historical artifacts from Native, Russian and United States Control. We spent about 1.5 hours going through the museum and had a wonderful time.
