Great place to learn about the history of Alaska settlement and see local art by Alaskans. Plan to spend 1.5-2 hours. There is also a kids section, hands on sections (physics) and planetarium (extra costs).

We spent a couple of hours in the museum. It definitely was interesting and informative about the Alaska (and B.C.) Natives. Also a little background information on Anchorage.

My sister and I went to the Muse for a blind beer tasting with an appitizer. It was Beer Week in Anchorage, and Midnight Sun Brewing sponsored the event. The bar is so tasteful, very nicely done. We ordered off the happy Hour Menu. A cheese plate, artichoke dip, french fries with goat cheese, and the chicken pot pie. All... More

I found this museum to be very enjoyable. There is a lot to see and it is probably worth more than one visit.

I've been to the museum several times, most recently for a showing of the documentary Finding Vivian Maier. I continue to be impressed with the class and style of the museum. I love that we have such a quality cultural offering in Anchorage! Suitable for out of state visitors looking to learn a bit more about Alaska and Alaskans, as... More

This museum is too big and has too much to see in just one visit. To do it justice, plan on going at least 3 times/days. The Alaska exhibits of course is the best in the world. You want to see and learn about "the big one" (earthquake), it's there. You want to take your kids to an interactive, fun... More

For the big kids there is art, cultural stuff, and rotating exhibits. For the little ones there is the Imaginarium. Fun for all ages.

This Museum has a decent range of interesting displays showing a good portion of the History in Alaska. I was impressed by the artifacts on display, but overall it lacks a full utilization of the space. I think a lot more could be added to make this a one of a kind museum but it's just not there yet. I... More
