Beginning Tuesday, May 8th, Sitka National Historical Park will transition to our summer hours of operation. This year the Visitor Center and the Russian Bishop House will have the same hours of operation which will be open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
At the visitor center Ranger-led interpretive programs will be held daily, with topics focusing on the stories and legends of the totem poles, the Battle of 1804, sea otter ecology and other aspects of the park’s natural and cultural history. The park’s 12-minute film will be played on request. Master artisans will be demonstrating in the art studios on days when cruise ships are in town.
The Russian Bishop’s House Ranger-led programs of the upstairs residence will be offered every thirty minutes on the hour and half hour, with the first program beginning at 8:30 a.m. and the last tour beginning at 4:00 p.m. The first floor hosts a self-guided museum and video that are available anytime during open hours.
Park trails are now open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Cyclists are reminded that bicycles must be walked on park trails. A bicycle rack is provided at the visitor center for those wishing to explore the rest of the park on foot. Visitors are also welcome to walk dogs on park trails, but must keep their pets on a leash at all times and dispose of pet waste properly. We appreciate your cooperation with these important park policies.
