This is a wonderful museum - lots to see and a lot of information of Alaskan history. We spent at least 2 hours looking at everything. Very informative. This is a must see attraction in Juneau

“Lovely museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Outstanding collection of Alaskan history and artifacts from native tribes as well as Russian occupation and gold rush history. Interesting wildlife exhibits. Well worth the walk from your cruise ship and the small admission fee.

“Nice small museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Spent an hour here on a cruiseship stopever. Within easy walking distance to the cruiseship terminal. It is a smaller museum but very interesting. One display was of native weaving and that was lovely. Small gift shop, not much in it. Staff were nice and friendly.

“Excellent Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The museum has exceptional Native Alaska exhibits with items from numerous cultures depicting the entire state along with gold rush history and displays from current artists. The exhibits are well done and gave detailed information about each culture. The museum was quite impressive! The museum was located within walking distance from the cruise ship and most ages would enjoy it.
