We visited the Sealaska Heritage museum today after a half hour presentation by an Alaska Native on the Oosterdam Holland America cruise ship docked in Juneau Alaska. What a amazing presentation and then to visit heritage center. Recommend it nightly to anyone visiting Juneau.

Very interesting history of the native Alaskans. Fairly new museum with a tribal house. Be sure and look for the axe marks on the wood all over this.

This is a small museum with some great exhibits. The entrance fee is nominal and the gift shop had some interesting items for sale.

One of the better museums we have visited in Alaska. Great location with expansive information on SE Alaskan Native history. Inexpensive entrance fee. Definitely worth the few bucks we paid. Nice gift shop with local artisans handmade crafts.
