Anchorage has a beautiful museum and its a must see if you are in the area. The history is rich and they have wonderful displays. I encourage any military folks stationed here to go check it out and learn more about where they are living.

I've been to the Museum several times in the four years I've been here. We really enjoy the First Friday events. Once a month, on the first Friday, the museum is open admission from 6 pm to 9 pm. They hold special events during that time, showcasing local artists, our local dance schools will put on shows. During the exhibition... More

I've been to the museum several times since I moved to Anchorage 2 years ago. I never miss the Native Alaskan Exhibits, It is my favorite part of the museum. The vast differences in the Native cultures from SE Alaska to the Aleutians to the far North is amazing. The collection is definitely one of a kind and too large... More

Alaskan art is unique and in addition to that there are special exhibits including ones if how the indigenous people's lived. These are life sized and extremely interesting. A must for children and adults alike.

We live in the valley (an hour north of Anchorage) so when we go to Anchorage, going to the museum is a reward for the kids after doctors appointments or shopping. We keep a yearly membership because it is worth the price for our family of 5, then even if we want to stop for something quick, we don't have... More

Be sure to see the movies at the museum. We were there for the 50th anniversary of the earthquake. The pictures were great.

The museum handles different aspects: history, people, economics. There also is a great science part. You can try out some things yourself. Especially when you visit with kids it's a welcome distraction. As is the Planetarium. The exhibit on native culture was a good complement to the Alaska Native Heritage Center we visited on the day before. When we visited... More

During the time we had, my wife explored some of the broader museum and brought back interesting stories. On the other hand, my kids and I spent the entire time playing around in the Imaginarium Discovery Center, which has great interactive activities that engaged my elementary and middle school children.

Since we started traveling to Anchorage with our son, the Anchorage Museum has become a must visit destination while we are there. The Planetarium is fun and interactive, especially for a little boy who loves all things science. On our most recent visit, our Lego-obsessed 5 year old had to go see the Lego exhibit. My husband and I were... More

The permanent exhibits are a must see when in Anchorage. The new Smithsonian gallery will take several visits by itself before you can truly say you have seen it. With the constantly rotating new exhibits, and the community exhibits and events in the common area, there is always something new to see, even once you have managed to give the... More
