  • I really enjoyed this museum which gave an overall review on so many things Anchorage. From the local artists, to the history of Anchorage to sculptors to the pipeline and so muchmore.

  • Fascinating galleries showcasing indigenous to territorial to present. Particularly impressed with the depth of the Smithsonian Arctic Studies collection, showcasing separate Siberian-Alaskan-Canadian indigenous cultural artifacts and video interviews of the people and their experiences. Beautiful building.
  • Very extensive museum! 4 floors with excellent variety of exhibits. We spent the whole day there. Nice park next to museum which is nice for a picnic. The day we went there was a food truck offering snacks and baked treats with funds going to a charity to help the homeless. Great museum!
