Great views of the Chugach Mountains from the top floor. I know while I was there there was an exhibit on trash in the ocean which was done so well... More

We stumbled across this museum whist we were walking through the centre of town. It was a great way to see and understand the history and heritage of Alaska and to get a real feel for the place. The exhibits are well constructed and cover the Native American heritage through the gold rush era, the growth spurt of WWII through... More

This was an excellent museum to give us some insight into the area we were going to be traveling in. The exhibitions of 'first nation' artifacts were fascinating. I also hadn't realised how many earthquakes there are in this area - they had an up to date (to the minute) map!

Replicas of traditional lodging built for seven cultures and sited around a small pond. Guided or self guide. Presentations and dancing inside; various videos on different... More

On a rainy day on our second day in AK, we took refuge in the museum. Exhibits provided a great overview of the history of the state and the native people.

Nice collection of Alaskan artifacts and history as well as some beautiful art. The kids enjoyed playing in the Imaginarium (hands-on science exhibits).

When you see Ralph Appelbaum's name as one of the exhibition designers, you know you are in for a real treat. The exhibition on the native peoples was especially well done, interesting, and informative. The historic exhibit about Alaska was also chock full of interesting tidbits. The contemporary art was inspiring. I loved this museum...so unexpected for being so far... More
