This museum is an easy walk from just about anywhere in Sitka. It's a newer building, houses many artifacts from the Tlinget and has a lot of history about Alaska and Sitka.

This is must see when down by the harbor. If you get time watch the Arch Angel Dancers re-enact Russian dancing. They are very good at what they do and deliver a great story.

This newly opened museum is located in Harrigan Centennial Hall and is chock full of Sitka history. It is a must do, see, and read to better understand the complex convergence of the Tlingit and Russian and American settlers.

If you are in Sitka and enjoy aboriginal art, this place is not to be missed. Only a short walk from the dock and has something for everyone. You will also learn about the local flora and fauna. Small admission fee but well worth it.
