Visited here whilst on a tour with our guide from the cruise. Very attractive building and our guide said the governor is very often seen cooking his barbecues and often gives a wave to passers by. The totem pole is very well kept as is...More

We passed the Governor's Mansion on a tour through Juneau and it is a very striking white structure with columns in the front and a very nice totem pole on the right side. There do not appear to be tours of the mansion. We got...More

The mansion looks a little like it was modeled after Mt. Vernon. The lack of obviuous security was a little surprising, but it may be subtle. You cannot tour, so it is interesting to see, but not a huge deal if you can't.

It was great walking around the building, but could not figure out if there were tours of the inside. Would have been better with a narrated inside tour.

This is a very attractive house with nice views. However, there are no tours. The sign on the door says, "private residence".

By all rights, the place where the Governor lives should be a nice place. The Alaska governor should be very comfortable here. Understated, but elegant.

Went to visit because of Sarah. Wanted to see if you could see Russia. Surprised another politician lie. It is a nice place. Not far to walk from the cruise ship terminal. Worth the look if you like homes and wood work.

The Governors mansion is just a short walk from the pier and lovely home. It is situated in a neighborhood that is really pretty.
