Inside, the Native Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian artifacts on display include glasswork, halibut hooks, and masks. Don't miss the Shuká Hít, a hand-carved clan house featuring a stunning black-and-amber glass screen.

5. Just a half mile from the capitol building, Cope Park feels a world away. Descend the wooden staircase at Seventh Street and you'll enter a quiet, fir-fringed space. Unpack a picnic, or wind through the forest to go wading in Gold Creek.
