  • We really enjoyed our afternoon in the museum. We watched a couple of their educational short films and found the exhibits to be well-curated and interesting.

  • This was an enjoyable day with my two daughters Gracie and Mia and 2 grandchildren. I was surprised how much that the children were able to interact with the items. They had a blast. it's a beautiful building, beautiful view. They had a little scavenger hunt and received cute little stickers for achieving the task. It's not a large Museum, but have interesting well laid out display. You could spend about an hour and a half there there is lots to see wear a jacket, it gets pretty Windy
  • Museum has great details about Alaska and tundras. Loved their display. Entry was simple and overall a 2 hour good time to spend and learn. There are many puzzles and activities for children. All the displays were well managed and very informative.
