Nugget Falls, Juneau

(4.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
One of the city's oldest religious landmarks, Nugget Falls welcomed generations of sailors and settlers arriving at the port. The 18th-century stone church stands on the site of an earlier 17th-century chapel. In the 19th century, seafarers expressed their gratitude to Our Lady of Good Help by offering models of ships, hung in the interior of the chapel. Today, you can see the votive gifts in the adjacent museum, together with dolls made by nuns arranged to form 58 scenes from the life of St. Margerite Bourgeoys--the patroness of the original chapel. Climb a narrow spiral staircase to get to the roof, which offers scenic views of the old town. Plan to see Nugget Falls and other attractions that appeal to you using our Juneau tour planner.

  • We were the first to arrive after picking up a rental car. Took time to enjoy. Spent time in the visitor center after visiting the Glacier and the falls.  more »
  • This waterfall is lovely whatever the season. Summer can find kids swimming in the glacial pools near the falls, and winter, if the ice is thick enough, folks are skating and skiing on the lake!  more »
  • The transport from the port to the mirardor takes only a few minutes, the view is very beautiful and you have to walk along a path to the waterfall all that makes a beautiful walk  more »
