It was raining the day we landed in Juneau and made our way up to the State Capitol Building. It was quite a surprise when we viewed the building from across the street. This is not an imposing building and lacks architectural detailing and landscaped...More

When we visited Juneau's State Capitol you realize this 1931 building housed the territorial government. It wasn't until 1959 when Alaska became a state that the building was designated as the State Capitol. Due to Juneau being accessible only by boat or airplane I found...More

Not much to see here on first two floors, offices, some paintings and historical facts. No restoration. Only saw two workers.

We visited one afternoon. Easy to access. We didn’t do a tour. Just a brief look around if the building and outside statuary of Seward and the Brown Bear. An easy visit if you are a fan of capital buildings or state history.

I'm sorry but I don't understand why other reviewers are so hung up about the actual building, surely what goes on inside is far more important than what the outside looks like. Even with a fairly minimalist pamphlet there is enough information available to give...More

We just walked in and after a bit found a guy who opened up rooms and chambers for us to see; there is a self-guiding tour map. Good statue of Secretary of State William H. Seward in park across the way. Seward instigated purchase of...More

Imagine a factory building from 1900, then add some columns and a pediment. That's where the pols of Alaska gather every year. It is truly uninspiring as a building. I guess they were trying to save money...
