This museum has some wonderful vintage - historic collections of items and histories of homesteaders, seafarers who escaped with their lives as well as contemporary art, and exhibits about wildlife, subsistence living, etc.

I enjoy museums and this one is a little Gem. It offers a view of life in Alaska in a small space. The staff are friendly and it is a nice place to spend time on a wintery day.
