My wife and I have long enjoyed native arts and materials, and we were astonished by the museum's collection. This exhibit alone is well worth the price of admission.

Spent about 3 hours going through the exhibits. They also have a planetarium with movies, but I didn't have the time. Enjoyed the different native tribes displays. There is also a children's area with lots of fun things to touch and play with. We had a 10 hr wait and it was easy to leave our bags at the airport... More

I spent 2 hours skimming in the Native section. I'm planning to spend another 2 hours visit sometime soon. Great collection of Native culture & their daily life exhibit. Oh..went there for the Lego exhibition as well..it was OK.

If you want to get in free, wait for the first Friday of the month and go in the evening, from 6-9 pm. This is a popular First Friday attraction in Anchorage. You can also get in free on the first Saturday of the month if you have a Bank of America account or credit card. I get in free... More

We visited on First Friday for free. The museum is very educational and worth a visit if you are in town. There was a lot of native culture displays. There is a small gift shop also.

Anchorage has a beautiful museum and its a must see if you are in the area. The history is rich and they have wonderful displays. I encourage any military folks stationed here to go check it out and learn more about where they are living.

I've been to the Museum several times in the four years I've been here. We really enjoy the First Friday events. Once a month, on the first Friday, the museum is open admission from 6 pm to 9 pm. They hold special events during that time, showcasing local artists, our local dance schools will put on shows. During the exhibition... More
