Small Capitol, easy to access from downtown for a self guided tour, when not in session. Enjoyed Alaskan art work and historical exhibits on every floor.

Like to take in the capitols when we're passing through different states. Really thought with all the money that Alaska has their state capitol building would be better than it was.

When our cruise ship docked in Juneau, one of the things we wanted to see was the state capitol building. Juneau has a beautiful scenic setting. We walked from the dock. It was somewhat hilly but we were able to walk leisurely and observe the...More
