We thought the museum was excellent. It provided a good start to learning more about Alaska in preparation for our inside passage cruise. Great gift shop, too!

We spent alot of time here; great exhibit of native culture, Russian history, gold rush days. It is one of the few worthwhile places to visit in Juneau.

This museum was just the right size, very informative. Every display was thoughtfully arranged and easy to see. A wonderful overview of the amazing Alaska heritage. Good for children as it is not too large and overwhelming, with walking trails nearby.

All of the major sights are within an easy walk from the cruise ship dock. There is also a nice walk along the shore line park towards the bridge to Douglas Island.
