“If you're a real history buff.”
Reviewed September 29, 2010

We visited Sitka while on an Alaska cruise. We stopped by the Russian Bishop's House on our way to Totem Park. It's free to walk around the downstairs (which has a lot of artifacts out on display), but they charge (I think it was $4) to take a guided tour of the house which includes the upstairs (we didn't do the guided tour.) What I saw downstairs was interesting, but given the limited amount of time that we had on shore, there were some other places that I would've liked to explore more and definitely could have skipped this site.
