This museum has both current shows and lots of Alaskan information and history. Great hands-on area for kids. One of the best restaurants and gift shops in the city.

For anyone having more than a few hours in Anchorage, The Museum is absolutely a "must". It is user friendly and a wonderful history of Alaska and Anchorage

I took my three year old and we went to the Imaginarium part we all had a blast not only were some parts teaching and she wanted to learn but it was interesting for adults because of the hands on experiements. There was a little indoor tree play ground with all sorts of creative toys she loved and the other... More

If you want to learn about the native cultures in Alaska and their history, then this is the place to go. Outstanding visual display about the native peoples of Alaska. Also, they have rotating exhibits. The last one was about the amount of accumulated plastic junk and other debris that clutters our oceans. It was a fantastic exhibit. Now, they... More

My 7 year old (and really the whole family) love the Imaginarium and the Planetarium. The gift shop is great, and the rotating exhibits are wonderful. We have purchased a membership to this museum.

The look of the museum is very modern and edgy. We spent hours in the museum and didn't have enough time to see it all. This was my first time to Anchorage and it was so interesting to hear all about the history of Alaska. The "Gyre" exhibit was very interesting and really captured my attention. The Proximity exhibit was... More

Our 5 year old spent hours & hours in both the Imaginarium (kids' science museum) and Museum portion of the building this summer. We loved the creative, hands-on exhibits, the layout, and the special kids' art projects they had some weekends. I enjoyed the art, history & culture. There are a couple of amazing docents & they give tours regularly... More

This was a great place to spend a drizzly afternoon! The exhibits about the native cultures were especially good.

Under one roof, the history of Alaska, the customs and culture of the First Nations Tribes, interesting science exhibits (the children loved these, and so did the dads!) and stunning paintings by local artists. An excellent shop too. Well worth a visit.
