Fun Afternoon

The Anchorage Museum is worth the trip if you have a day in town. In addition to interesting exhibits, they have fun films to see there too.

One could spend all day watching a 3 year old explore here. Interactive exhibits are education and entertaining.

Did not go here by choice (our tour left from here) but it was one of the highlights of our trip and no Alaska visitor should miss it. One of the best museums I have ever been to.

Great place to learn about the history of Alaska settlement and see local art by Alaskans. Plan to spend 1.5-2 hours. There is also a kids section, hands on sections (physics) and planetarium (extra costs).

We spent a couple of hours in the museum. It definitely was interesting and informative about the Alaska (and B.C.) Natives. Also a little background information on Anchorage.

We ordered off the happy Hour Menu. A cheese plate, artichoke dip, french fries with goat cheese, and the chicken pot pie. All... More
