Historic Downtown Juneau Walking Tour
Want to know how the Gold Creek watershed region grew from a seasonal Alaska Native fish camp to become the capital city of the state of Alaska? Set out with a local Juneau-Douglas City Museum guide for a walk covering about 10 city blocks chock-full of stories. Learn how the thirst for gold literally changed the landscape of downtown Juneau. Hear the tales of prominent personalities and families from the early days. And make the tour your own by asking questions of your knowledgeable guide, who has deep connections to Alaska and Juneau, and loves sharing this knowledge and those experiences with visitors.
Tour includes admission to the City Museum, a 20% discount on select items in the Museum Store, and tea time at Alaska’s Capital Inn, the historic home of Gold Rush pioneer John Olds. Built in 1906, the Inn has been restored and furnished with turn of the century elegance and is run as a bed and breakfast today.
Walking tours take place rain or shine on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 1:30pm and involve moderate walking (including stairs and inclines). All tours begin at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, located on the corner of 4th and Main Streets and last approximately 90 minutes.
