I visited the museum on a short stopover in Anchorage. I thought it was excellent in terms of facilities - very nice building, and internally it was everything you'd want from a museum. When I arrived and bought my ticket I was told that they would only charge me $7 for my entry as many exhibitions were not open. This... More

Approx half the museum was closed for changing exhibits when we visited, and they very appropriately charged us half price. My 15 and 18 year olds still had a blast in the science/discovery portion of the museum. I think everyone visiting Anchorage should stop here if they are interested in arctic culture and history.

If you can't get out to all the varied areas of Alaska and see the unique cultures in each, the museum will give you a good vision for just how diverse each region is. I particularly like that the cultures are not represented as 'in the past', but described as living communities, still growing and changing. Of note is how... More

Great museum. It has a couple nice options for coffee, snacks or meals. Art is my favorite, and next is AK history. Kids are more than welcome.

There is a wonderful gift shop where you can purchase a wide variety of jewelry, books, and works of art. Finally, the museum's restaurant, the Muse, offers delicious foods and... More

We went to the Anchorage Museum the morning before we flew home. I am so happy that we did. It was awesome and kinda wish we would have done it before we went before travel all around Alaska. We learned so much about the native culture and about the settlement of this beautiful state. Do miss out on this museum!!

We took our 3 year old son with us to the museum and he absolutely loved it! There were so many neat activities for children. The coolest thing was being able to make huge bubbles, my son loves bubbles! There is also a children's area for kids under 5 where they can play, my son really enjoyed that too. Hope... More
