Nice history presentation through statues in front of the lobby. Seward and the Alaska purchase, miners and a bear to pose with. It is on the way to the Juneau-Douglas City Museum.

We were in town from a cruise ship. By the time we had finished our excursions, the Capitol building was closed for the day, so we only saw the outside. It’s not as impressive as many other Capitol buildings I have visited. There is no...More

The Capital is another place that is just a short walk from the pier and it is literally right in the middle of town. Not much to see as it is a working office building but worth the time to swing by and see on...More
