Alaska State Capitol Building Tours

Funds were approved by Congress for the construction of this capitol building back before the Alaska Territory was even a state. At six stories high, it is unique in the fact that is does not have a dome, with porticos made from marble of the nearby Prince Wales Island.

The exterior is composed of red brick reinforced by concrete, seemingly blending into its surroundings. Be sure to check out the two murals on the inside — they feature harvest of both the land and sea, integral to Alaska’s way of life. Carvings depict the many industries on which Alaskans rely, including mining, fishing, hunting, and oil and gas.

The building’s second and third floor house the offices of the State Legislature, Governor, and Lieutenant Governor of Alaska. The legislative chambers are also found there. Free guided tours are given seasonally, and a visit is incorporated into most tours of historic Juneau.

Practical Info

The capitol building is located at the corner of East 4th Street and Main Street in Juneau. Legislation is in session from January to April.
