Couldn't believe a museum cafe --visited as a break during an extensive museum visit--was a place I'd CHOOSE for a dinner out, were it open later, but it is! Flights of beers, extensive wine list, best-ever broccoli cheddar soup, and spinach artichoke dip to die for. Too bad Anchorage is so far from home...

My husband and I had lunch here while waiting for our motor coach to Whittier. We split the hummus appetizer and chicken pot pie. Both we good portion sizes and tasted delicious! Would definitely recommend!

We stopped at the Muse Restaurant while we were at the Alaska Museum in Anchorage. We were very pleased with the service, menu variety, and quality of food. We were seated nicely and the service was great. We thought the only negative was it is just a little pricey. But as we found out, most things are pricey in Alaska.

Muse had gotten really great reviews in a number of places that I had researched. WOW! It was a refreshing change in your usual museum cuisine! The decor was contemporary and upscale, the servers were very professional and the food was beautifully presented with layers of flavors! Alright, it may cost a bit more than your usual museum fare, but... More

The lunch service was fairly fast, the salmon very good as well as dessert, and you don't have to buy a ticket to the museum to eat there. But it was incredibly expensive for two. However, speaking of the museum, if you have a long wait before your flight out of Anchorage, for the price of admission ($15.00/seniors $10.00), you... More

I planned on eating lunch here before checking out the museum exhibits and looked over their menu on the museum website beforehand. I had the grilled salmon sandwich which comes with a small bowl of slaw. Pricey at $15, it was worth it and this was one of the better meals i had while in Alaska.

Quick, light, and very good lunch menu. Restaurant is located in a museum, but admission to museum is not necessary to eat at the Muse.

We stumbled on the Muse quite accidentally while killing time in Anchorage. A few days later, we hustled back from Seward so that we could lunch there again. The chowder is (hands down) the best we tasted on our entire trip to Alaska. And the yam planks are equally exceptional. The chef would not part with recipes, so we fear... More

Who would expect much from an eatery in a museum? Not I! I've eaten in many museums and the food is always acceptable and expensive but when the hunger monster strikes in the middle of a museum visit what else can one do? The restaurant at the Anchorage Museum is a joyous surprise. At Muse the food was absolutely excellent.... More

The Muse offers a good selection of not so typical cafe food. We ordered the shrimp po' boy with fennel slaw. It was excellent. Would go back if we could to try their chowder and their burgers.
