I am an archaeology graduate student in Japan. This museum have excellent exhibit to learn how Alaska has rich cultural resources. Usually people visit Alaska strongly focus on its natural resources such as animals, glaciers, and mountains. This museum gives you new impression and thick knowledge about people who lived in Alaska long time ago and native ancestors' life.

Visited this museum with my son's family and thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits. I was enthralled by the beaded work in the clothing exhibit. My one-year-old grandson had a fantastic time in the children's play area: puzzles, books, giant bubbles, and more. Worth every penny. I learned a lot about the culture of the area. And the gardens out front were... More

This is a 'general' museum of art, history, culture. It is small but well done and informative. The art collection is very small so don't expect a lot of art. Definitely worth a visit.

We had a great time! We unknowningly spent 2hrs in there! We would have spent more but they were closing :( The only thing I didn't like was that the carpet in the kids wet area smelled really bad. I understand it's wet all the time but there's gotta be a better solution... But overall it was awesome! The kids... More

Paid general admission since not very interested in the feature exhibit, "Brick by Brick" (thing Lego). Lots of empty space but may be bad timing, winter season. It is more a museum of native culture, less an art museum. The art works are quite limited to less than half of one of 4 floors. That art is more of 'new... More

If you love museums and you're in the area, the Anchorage Museum is definitely worth a visit. It has an extensive collection of Alaskan Native items, a thorough visual of Alaskan history, plus an art exhibit and kid's room. However, the main exhibits don't change very often, and seasonal exhibits are often small. I recommend visiting on First Fridays if... More

We have gone to a handful of the special showings at the museum and have always enjoyed them. The Sydney Laurence pieces are amazing!

Educational. We enjoyed the museum, close to shopping and restaurants. The garden in front was fabulous. The flowers were gorgeous. We went to the Muse Restaurant (inside the museum) twice on different days for lunch. Food and service were good both times. We really had a nice time.

The museum is very well done, easy access to other levels by elevator or stairs. The outside parking was a dream located just across the street. There was something for all ages in this very special museum.
