Anchorage Museum regularly creates exhibits and experience to delight all ages and interests. One of the first places I recommend to family, friends or business associates when visiting Alaska. Parking can be a challenge but there is available places. Enjoy! We do.

The Anchorage Museum has something for all ages. The Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center contains rare Alaskan heritage objects. The Discovery Center provides an opportunity for young visitors to explore physics, earth and life science.

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

I am a bit biased. I have visited the museum since the late 70s, spent many hours there with family and friends, watched id grow and improve, and finally decided, after retiring, to become a docent. It is a fantastic experience for the whole family,...More

It was a pretty nice museum, but a little sporadic without a firm specialization. I went for the Alaskan art, which was good, but even within that, it lacked a focus that most museum special collections pride themselves on. It's worth a visit if you...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.
