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

We dined once again on First Friday at Muse. The meals were excellent and all the wine was $5 a glass - the reason very shortly. The band was entertaining but probably a bit too loud - oh well - that is First Friday. What we learned was stunning news - the Marx Brothers contract is up this week, and... More

Marx Bros Cafe just a few blocks away has AMAZING service, fresh, local foods & a quaint ambiance. Muse is run by Marx Bros but do not go there for dinner before going to Muse!!! Muse was disappointing in the layout, it's darkness, the blandness of the food, the length of time to get our meal, and especially the service.... More

We loved the food here and it was all very well done. Great combination of flavors: crispy french toast with fresh strawberries, burger with mozzarella and basil, alaskan smoked salmon with capers, cream cheese.
