Like to take in the capitols when we're passing through different states. Really thought with all the money that Alaska has their state capitol building would be better than it was.

We were just walking around town and came across this building. It was completely under scaffolding and they were replacing the facade. We didn't go in, but stood outside and watched them work on it. It will be very nice once they it get it all completed.

When our cruise ship docked in Juneau, one of the things we wanted to see was the state capitol building. Juneau has a beautiful scenic setting. We walked from the dock. It was somewhat hilly but we were able to walk leisurely and observe the downtown area. We had not previously looked for any information on the capitol. When we... More

At least while the building is under construction, there isn't much to see other than a bunch of scaffolding. We were walking in the area so stopped by, but it's definitely not worth any extra effort. There were some nice small park/statues on nearby street corners, so we enjoyed seeing those.

We didn't realise the building was being renovated until we were upon it. What we could see of it was interesting - I would have loved to see the new marble pillars but they were under wraps.

Walked from our cruise ship down to see this building to find the streets around it closed and the whole building practically wrapped in plastic. Very small Capitol Building. I had seen it 10 years ago and wanted to revisit it. It is currently undergoing massive renovation to the exterior.

The state capitol building is unlike most other capitol buildings found in the lower 48. It looks more like an office building. The structure is still undergoing some repair.

Saw this item in our 3A book, and it was enjoyable. Also, if you walk across the 8th floor and go out, you will be on the hill close to the Capitol and local stores.

On my wife's quest to visit all 50 state capitols, we stopped by while on an inside passage cruise. The building is still under renovation and you cannot get inside to view the interior. The exterior, while not in the mold of what one typically envisions a Capitol to look like, was, nevertheless, interesting. You need to look beyond the... More

The State Capitol Building is not really much to see right now, as part of it is under tarps being rebuilt, and it doesn't even look like much when it's NOT being re-built. I wouldn't make a special trip up to see it, even if nearby.

Thank Larry W
