The Anchorage Museum has undergone some remodeling and a new wing has been added. These new spaces are beautiful and showcase the artwork perfectly. The imaginarium is fabulous! The Alaska section has been completely redone and is now interactive. Well worth an afternoon!

This is the place to take kids when it is cold out. Lots to do and learn. Dads have just as much playing and explaining as the little ones. This will keep them...and you...busy for hours.

I️ love the new big bright space for the display of fine art. Glad they could pull out all those wonderful paintings for us to enjoy. The dinosaur art exhibit was awesome.

Anchorage Museum regularly creates exhibits and experience to delight all ages and interests. One of the first places I recommend to family, friends or business associates when visiting Alaska. Parking can be a challenge but there is available places. Enjoy! We do.
