“Good to See if History is your Thing”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I love history and architecture and I accidentally stumbled upon this. I was glad to find it. Its a piece of Russia in the US.

They still have church there.

“Small view into a little known chapter of Alaskan history”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We were on a small tour of Orthodox Alaska and its relationship to native peoples, so had the opportunity to attend worship here, hear the history of the church and its congregation. The building is in pretty good shape with ongoing projects to rehabilitate portions. Many icons fill the interior, and the Russian style dome is worth walking up the hill to see.

“Worth seeing”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

Go on a walking tour! As soon as you get off the cruise ship go to the Information booth. Ask them to map our key places to see in Juneau - they are very helpful and knowledgeable.
You will discover interesting places to visit - like St. Nicholas. You can have a tour as long or as short as you want. Warning Juneau is a steep climb in some places so make sure you're prepared for that.

“A taste of Russia in America”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

This is a beautiful little church in Alaska. Nothing to dislike unless churches and museums aren't your thing.

“Great little church”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Fascinating to visit a Russian Orthodox church where the priest does not speak Russian. He was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. He admitted us to the church after the visiting hours were over and explained the inconography. The church is not an architectural wonder, but the friendliness of the priest and the history of it are why I give it five stars.
