This is a very nice museum. It tells the story of some of the main industries in Alaska and the history of the local people. The collection includes items from native Alaskans as well as Russians and 'Americans'.

I visited this museum during a cruise stop in Juneau. It has a wonderful detailed exhibit on the history of Alaska starting with the history of the native tribes, Russian colonization and the acquisition by the US. It is well set out, clear and engaging. As good as any top museum anywhere in the world and probably the only one devoted to The history of Alaska! Kids might find it hard to focus all the way through, but they are free so you can bring them and not feel bad if they just dabble. It’s just 10 minutes to walk from Downtown to this museum and was well worth it.

A nice and well-displayed museum about Alaska's recent and not-so-recent history. A fairly large portion of the floorspace was allocated to the cannery operations which we found a little boring (as opposed to the native and WWII displays) but respect the significance of its influence to the growth of the city. Would not travel to Juneau just for this but while there a worthwhile visit.

I learned a lot about Alaska in the couple of hours I spent here. The exhibits on indigenous cultures and ere excellent (though I would have appreciated individual display items being numbered).

The decimation caused by industrial and colonial practices are addressed squarely, but without (often deserved) blame.
