Me and 2 kids (12, 17) spent a good couple of hours here in late March. There is something for everyone (except on a Sunday in winter when it is cold - try the Morris Thompson Cultural Center instead). The Museum focusses exclusively on "the North" and every aspect of Alaskan cultural history and geography. Art work, various displays of native Alaskan ethnography, flora and fauna. Probably the most interesting pieces for us were a rather compelling piece about the internment of Japanese and Aleuts during WW2 and how the latter were hushed up as well as the wonderful modern art upstairs and the "sound room" which takes the sounds of seismic and auroral activity and translates them into "earth magic". It really is quite different and spiritual to sit alone in the sound room and concentrate on the sound. It's not tranquil or peaceful... more of an intense throbbing that agitates and reminds you how alive you are.
