I've been visiting the capitol buildings around the country and this was my 43rd. It doesn't have a rotunda or dome like many other state capitols, but it has some interesting artwork and exhibits. There's a small plaza outside with a new statue honoring William...More

Had the opportunity to visit the Alaskan capital building in Juneau and it was very interesting. It's a self guided tour with a brochure pointing out everything to see with explanations. Even got to go into their House and Senate chambers. Beautiful old heavy thick...More

I have seen a few (very few) State Capitol buildings, and this one, unsurprisingly, is not one of the most impressive. But this is a small state, by population, and everything is relative. You can show yourself round for free, and the building is easy...More

A nice free activity in town. Guides are high school students. You are able to get up close and personal here.

The Capital is another place that is just a short walk from the pier and it is literally right in the middle of town. Not much to see as it is a working office building but worth the time to swing by and see on...More

So the Alaska State Capitol Building is not as ornate as others but it was nice. It was quiet and the legislature was not in session. There's a brochure at the front desk with a summary of the self-guided tour. Start at the 5th floor...More

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.
