I love this museum. It's such a fun place to experience the culture, history, and life of Alaska. From Aurora Borealis to wildlife, it's a great place for learning.

As a resident of Alaska for over 40 years, I have seen this museum grow and grow and grow. It is a beautiful facility, but my favorite exhibits are still many of the original ones. I really like how the exhibits are laid out in the major regions/peoples of Alaska.

Love the collections of painting and prehistoric hands-on experience. You’ll meet all the wild animal specimens hands-on and fragile in cases.
