This was our 49th state capitol building, and it was really nothing special. A little local art work. Had the Liberty Bell right out front.

You can go to visit the capital, they offer tours or you can do your own tour with the brochure . It was very interesting and I could have taken more time if I wasn't rushed.

I enjoyed this tour even more than I thought I would. Some interesting architecture, photographic history on the walls, etc. This tour is worth 45 minutes to an hour and is easy to do "self guided" using the brochure they hand you in the lobby/reception...More

While in Juneau I walked to the State Capitol. Just a short piece from downtown Juneau. While there also walk and see the Govenors Mansion.

A great Art Deco building with great collections of art and historical photos on the walls. A very useful guide is given to you at the front desk.

Walked through the Alaska State Capitol building during a shore stop on our Alaskan cruise. Employees inside the Capitol were friendly and helpful with info.

We didn't go inside, but it is always fun to Visit a state capital and see what pomp and circumstance is visible. The building isn't anything extravagant. Still...always interesting.

Even though not really attracting, inside there are some facilities. We had a coffee, we used the toilet, we looked around to see some Alaska objects and finally going to the terrace you have a nice view of the city.

We were surprised to find that the Alaska state capitol is open for the public to walk around. You can see the senators' and representatives' offices and the respective meeting chambers. Worth a visit for the curiosity.
