My wife and I visited this location last week and despite the rain outside, inside it was full of warmth. The ONLY negative was parking, the garage was closed and finding a parking spot on the street was a PIA. Once inside however it was another story, rich in native history, easy to get around on the various floors and... More

Very expensive considering that half the museum was being renovated, and was unaccessible. Overpriced gift shop!

Loved their exhibit on the second floor of the native people. So nicely done. The restaurant was a bit disappointing.....very slow service and many dirty tables.

When I learned that the main gallery would not reopen until the Fall of 2017 I was disappointed...until I checked out the remaining exhibitions. There is a wonderful Arctic Studies centre with many exhibits loaned by the Smithsonian Institute. Arranged by tribe the well-presented artefacts are accompanied by some very moving video stories. Elsewhere the selection of modern indigenous art... More

The Smithsonian exhibition alone...made this visit to the museum both enjoyable and memorable. The art work and photographs added to our enjoyment. The lockers to put away stuff you were carrying...to begin with a little challenging.. but very simple once how to operate them was worked out. Lunch in the restaurant was very good. Well worth the visit.

The museum is small - figure two or three hours - but almost all the exhibits are well done, including native peoples, geology, traditional and modern Alaskan art, etc. Definitely worth a stop.

Went to the Museum with my Family kids 10/5. Museum has things that attracts all. Had to spend less than i desired. 1. There are great science activity on 1st floor. 2. Great Art and Alaska history on 2/3 floors.

I visited this museum at the beginning of my staying in Anchorage, and that was a very good idea since it gave me an introduction about the local natives. Level 4 and 3 are just ok with temporary exhibitions, but level 2 was unbelievably nice. There are videos, descriptions and hundreds of artifacts from the different populations of natives. I...
