Great place to eat

Surroundings are clean and modern and you wouldn't know it was in a museum. You can enter it without paying to get into the museum proper. $15 for a shrimp salad which was large and tasty. Great value and perfect for lunch when visiting Anchorage and/or the museum.

This is very handy if you are at the museum. The food was ok and you is a good option if you don't want to walk to find other options. Have lunch then get back into the extensive museum.

Worked up our appetite enjoying the museum all afternoon and then stopped in at Muse for an early dinner and some wine. Excellent food and atmosphere to relax in.

We found it to be better than the downtown restaurants we've eaten at for 2/3 less .We would recommend to friends. They serve lunch till 4 PM, and do not serve dinner. A late... More
