Basic Information

Welcome to Sitka National Historical Park

We are opening the Totem Hall portion of the Visitor Center, on July 4, 2020 from noon to 4pm. We requests that visitors ages 5 and older wear masks when entering the building. No more than 10 people may be in the building at a time. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please follow the links below for more information about our limited hours of operation, and check back often as we may increase services in the future.

Be Prepared

To make the most of your visit plan ahead:

  • We welcome visitors year-round. Be sure to check park operating hours as they vary with the season.
  • The park is located on Baranof Island in Southeast Alaska. Once you arrive, finding your way to the park is easy!
  • Every season brings something new to learn, explore and experience. Activities and events vary with the season, so be sure to check on the calendar.
  • Weather in Sitka is different than what one expects to find in Alaska. Temperatures are mild and rainfall is very high.
  • Pets are allowed on the park trails and grounds. Dogs must be leashed at all times. Only service animals are permitted in buildings.
  • Encounters with brown bears are unlikely in the park, but preparing to visit the park should include some basic bear safety knowledge.
