Great museum showing the history of Alaska. Good place to start your Alaskan trip to get an overall snapshot of the culture and evolution of Alaska. The Muse Cafe inside the museum is also very good.

This museum not only covers Native Alaskan Cultures, but art, contemporary exhibits, development of the city of Anchorage, the 1964 Earthquake....ie, know you need at least a full day to experience every floor of this marvelous museum. The free tours are a wonderful introduction and provide an overview. Videos are an extra fee but excellent!

We LOVE the Anchorage Museum. The revolving exhibits are great, there is a wonderful children's section and it is overall rich in Alaska's history. We loved seeing everything from Native art and culture to the pipeline and current events/projects that shaped the state to where it is today.

We spent several hours at this fine museum and learned a great deal about Alaska, its exploration and its history. It has 4 floors of exhibits and we were most impressed with the data, exhibits and information relative to Captain Cook and his exploration of Alaska (and Hawaii). The entire 3rd floor was devoted to this. Other floors had wonderful... More

Also visited the Captain Cook exhibition on the third floor which was brilliant. Second floor exhibits on local Alaskan tribes was brilliantly presented. Only downside was the cost... More
