To the left of the base of the tram at the waterfront, there's a concrete whispering wall that the kids thought was pretty cool.

Juneau-Douglas City Museum offers a glimpse into Alaska's capital city

Tips for Families

This is best for kids K and up; 8+ will enjoy it most, since there is some reading involved, and many of the photos show kids of that age working around home, and living it up in Juneau's early days. The museum is small; it takes about 45 minutes for kids who are really into the exhibits, but less than 30 for those who are not. That said, it's worth a visit. The location alone is worth a stop; a totem pole in front, great stroll through the narrow, steep streets to get there, and the museum is right across the street from the main legislative building for the State of Alaska.

Mighty Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau is accessible and affordable family fun

Flag review

Tips for Families

Juneau is a rainy place, and the glacier can cause chilly winds to sweep through the valley and off the lake, so dress for cold, wet, and windy conditions. Strollers are totally okay here. Watch for black bears who frequent the area, and keep kids close at hand. Best time to visit is in the evening, after the cruise ship traffic has moved on. If you are on a cruise ship, take time to explore on your own!

Mount Roberts Tramway in Juneau a highline adventure for families!

Flag review

Tips for Families

Take care on the narrow, alpine trails. Smaller kids should be near a grownup at all times. The Alaska TourSaver coupon book offers a 2-for-1 deal on the tram ride; without it tickets are near $20. Worth it, however. Spend a few hours up top, and enjoy a meal or snack at the restaurant (sit by the window!). If you are not part of a cruise ship visiting the port, take the tram on a "non ship" day (fewer folks), or go in the evening to capture the beautiful sunset. Take a water bottle or two, and snacks for kids. While jog strollers could perform well on shorter trails, for higher hikes, pack young babies/toddlers on your back or front.
