Most interesting thing to do in Anchorage, lots of local history and a nice setting. The Alaska history exhibit is very good and there is a travelling exhibit from the Smithsonian

We had rain on our first day in Anchorage, so we went to the Anchorage Museum! Very happy we did. Our favorite part was definitely the 2nd floor exhibits, with all the beautiful Native American artifacts from the Smithsonian. Definitely worth a visit.

Great exhibits! Learned a lot about Anchorage. Took about an hour and a half to complete, but you could spend much more time there!

visited the museum. Interesting exhibits - I went through it all in about 90 minutes which was enough for me! The baseball exhibit on the top floor is not to be missed. Also, the housing exhibit was quite interesting.
