Default Museums - Juneau

Sounds like there is 3 museums in Juneau - Alaska State, City Museum and Last Chance Mining Museum. Would you recommend any of these?

Also, has anyone done the Juneau Trolley Car City tour?

Also the self guided tour of the Capital. If still offered and from there you can take a look at the Governor's house- has a nice totem in front. These are worthwhile- if you have the time, and great for repeat visitors. If you have other interests in tours give them the priority.

Thanks Karen. I am going on the cruise with my 12 yr old nephew and he loves to learn so I thought he might enjoy the museums to find out about the history of Alaska and the gold rush. Thought we would wonder around the town after doing a whale watching trip.

The city museum is just next to the Capitol. It has a nice mining display as well as a display of the orginal entries for a contest that lead to the state flag. This is a smaller museum, but it turned out to be a good size for my son.

Hi - we just got back from an Alaskan cruise with a stop in Juneau. We went to the State Museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. Along with 5 adults we had 2 - 15 year old girls. They liked it as well! I'm not sure if you have seen this yet or not but here is a web-site for the museum: http://www.museums.state.ak.us/asmhome.html

Good luck and have a great time!

We went to the Last Chance Mine Museum three years ago, and will go back next month. It's an interesting place, and the location was fun, back behind the city on the other side of the mountain. The State Museum is worth seeing, we'll go back to that one, too, and this time we won't miss the City museum. (We'll be in Juneau for a week.) --Bob
