You may as well walk into town adn see the Capitol building. You can also see the Gopvernors Mansion and a few other statues and memorials in the area. Also some good shopping and eats.

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

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.
