“State Capitol?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Kind of forgettable by state capitol standards. Looks like a average size high school. The tour was short and informative though.

“Interesting Capitol tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

For such a huge state geographically, the Capitol is shockingly small and understated. I did my own tour, rather than the organized one, and if you're a politics or history buff it's a pretty interesting place. The office provided a pamphlet, and you can freely browse the house and senate galleries. Definitely walk over to the governor's mansion around the corner as well.

“Free Tour but Slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We were given a guide to tour us thru the 5 floors of the capital.
There were 3 of us to begin with, then a foursome showed up and really slowed things down. We completed the tour by ourselves. Was not able to see the Gov's office because they were working..
Interesting pictures of past officials. They offer a free WiFi area on the 2nd floor.

“Beautiful State Capitol”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Juneau has a lot to offer the independent traveller and a well sign-posted walking tour will take you around all the downtown points of interest including the Capitol, City Museum & Governors Mansion. A great option if you don't want to spend a fortune on guided tours.

“Worth the Stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We stopped by the Capital building and Governor’s Mansion on a short walk from the downtown cruise ship area. It was quite small by California standards. Unlike California, they must operate efficiently. We also went around the corner up the street to the Governors Mansion that is close by. Cool!
