This is a museum which shows all the history and important dates, and data of Anchorage, Alaska. How people, the tribe used to live there, how slowly they changed their life style, how they used to hunt, how they used to dress etc. It is a pretty Museum and you need at least a day to see it properly, and...

While waiting to catch a late night plane home, we visited the Anchorage Museum. The exhibits od the Alaska tribes was very interesting & the settlement by Russians & Americans was informative.

This is an excellent museum. Went with my teenage daughter, who didn't share my level of interest in Anchorage history, but they had a great planetarium show on the Aurora, and a well done hands-on sciency exhibit she did like. The history exhibit is extensive and thorough -- lot of info, clearly and attractively presented. Right now (summer 2015) there's... More

Enjoyed a morning exploring the Anchorage Museum! It was easy to walk to and had a fun variety of exhibits to view. Loved the Smithsonian area most of all. Compared to other museums in the area, the price was just right!

Artifacts from the basement of the Smithsonian (where they were kept in storage for decades) are now the foundation of an interactive world-class exhibit of Alaska Native arts and artifacts. It's the best exhibit of its kind I've ever seen. Many of the pieces were purchased in the 19th century by Smithsonian "finders," so their history and makers are well... More

Very fun. I like this museum quiet a bite and I'm not a real history buff. You learn the life of cook, Webster and some other famous people. The photos, video and items they wore were very interesting

An excellent museum. Although the "Muse"restaurant had really awful service and strange food, the rest of the museum is great.

We've enjoyed the Anchorage Museum a number of times and there is always more to see. This time we were particularly interested in the Arctic Ambitions exhibit about Captain Cook's voyage north in search of the northwest passage. It was excellent with many details to give you a feel for the time and what the crew went through. I particularly... More
