The basics

Gold mining was an influential factor in Juneau’s history, and a visit to this museum offers an entertaining overview for first-time visitors. After a visit to the museum, travelers should consider a gold panning tour to Gold Creek (where gold was first discovered in Juneau) and the Last Chance Basin for a hands-on lesson in the hunt for gold. Many of these tours include a traditional Alaskan salmon bake for lunch or dinner for a quintessentially Alaskan day out.
