The museum is down town Anchorage so parking is always a problem. The museum gets a lot of big donations which they spent on a fancy expensive exterior. Meanwhile inside it’s the same old stuff for kids and high prices to get in. My son...More

What a wonderful historical treat! The Anchorage Museum was briefly included in our motorcoach package. The 4-story modern building houses an array of information about the Alaskan culture and shows many samplings of their artwork, clothes, weaponry, musical instruments, etc. Definitely not one to miss.

From pink polar bears that are definitely something new, to artifacts from the first inhabitants of Alaska, the Bigger space is way Better than the old one. All the Best of the old with a Bold Bnew Building.

I really enjoyed the newest wing, the Art of the North gallery. I admit an affinity to the playful bears made with colorful boas. The portraits that went from the late 1800s to today were fascinating. And the children's area was fun, even though we...More
