I'm not really into museums, as I'd rather be exploring the great outdoors, but if you're in Anchorage, this is a worthwhile stop. I enjoyed the Imaginarium and exploring the various cultures of Alaska. Lots of art here, too. Staffed with very friendly people, I...More

The Museum has recently completed a large addition of gallery space and it uses it all to its best effect. Contemporary Alaskan artists get a chance to show how good they are...and they are wonderful! You also get to look into the inner workings of...More

We spent a couple hours here, both on the Imaginarium side and the art exhibit side. Our kids enjoyed the hands-on experiences and some (but not all) of the art exhibits. Overall, we were impressed. Maybe 40% of what we saw was actually connected to...More

The Anchorage Museum has undergone some remodeling and a new wing has been added. These new spaces are beautiful and showcase the artwork perfectly. The imaginarium is fabulous! The Alaska section has been completely redone and is now interactive. Well worth an afternoon!

This is the place to take kids when it is cold out. Lots to do and learn. Dads have just as much playing and explaining as the little ones. This will keep them...and you...busy for hours.
