We had a free day in Anchorage, it was raining, so we decided to find something indoors to do. We decided to find out about Alaska and went to the museum. What a surprise to find this gem in the middle of the city. We were there on Mother's Day and were extremely surprised to find free admission that day (thanks Wells Fargo). The displays and interpretive signs were all done in superb fashion. We spent hours in the main display area and it did get to the point of being somewhat overwhelming with all the great information. If you are in Anchorage and have a free day, I'd really recommend spending some of it here if you want to find out about Alaska.
