“Get a guided tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

If you are into government/ politics, this is an interesting tour. Coming from a state with many more residents, the small scale of the house and senate chambers was surprising. Be sure to take in the photos along the walls. Taken years ago by local photographers, some of the images are rather striking and portray the native people in classic dress and surroundings.

Even though they were doing major renovations and construction we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The guide was thorough, efficient and very knowledgeable and pleasant.

“Not what we expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Interesting...as Alaska is the largest state but really has a less than impressive state Capitol. Guess we were expecting more. The bldg is old and was undergoing renovations but they won't really change the basics of the bldg. Not a problem really just was surprised.

“nothing great”

Was surprised at how plain this capitol building was... Also, they do not let you just roam around and look at it. you must take a tour.

“Nice building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

While we were in Juneau we went to the Capital several times to meet with our representatives. I really like the building but they seriously need to think about moving the capital to the Anchorage area before they start spending money remodeling the current capital.
