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.

I liked the Halibut Fish & Chips and the free wi-fi. My wife had a salad and said it was good. We were happy with the restaurant and were happy to have some place to sit and eat.

I think my title says it all. The First Run Copper River Red was just to kill for - we had been encouraged by the waitress to try this and it certainly didn't disappoint. All over a super lunch.

With NMS taking over the Muse contract, both service and food quality have increased substantially. The food with Marx Brothers was mediocre on a good day and the service, whether at lunch or dinner seemed to struggle. Granted with any transition there is always a learning curve, but I think both the food quality and the level of service provided... More

We ate lunch at Muse on a Saturday afternoon. My friend and I shared an order of yam wedges with basil aioli ( excellent.) I had a small Stilton wedge salad and my friend had seafood chowder. The yam order is very generous and we had to take part of it home as we couldn't finish. Both of us enjoyed... More

It is attached to the museum it is handy if you are spending time there. It si done up in bright red cafe style the food is tasty. We had only ok service. Servers seemed somewhat disinterested. It is overpriced. $11 for a 12 oz bowl of soup is too much in my books
