We were so glad we managed to do the walking tour before they ended for the season. Our guide, Ann, was so knowledgable. The highlight was tea with a local at her B&B at the end of our walk around the city. Highly recommend.

Very interesting displays and a video chronicling the early days of Juneau and Douglas. Was just amazed at the forward thinking engineering feats of those early inhabitants of Juneau. Nice way to spend an hour or so in Juneau.

This is a small museum, focused on the city history of Juneau. The video was excellent. Good exhibits about mining, Alaskan natives, and fishing. For us, 1 hour well spent to learn more about Juneau.

Even if you have seen the Alaska State museum in Juneau, it is worth a stop at the city museum. They have some interesting artifacts that are different from the State museum.We found all of their exhibits interesting.
