A peace of Alaskan Indian history uncovered and never imagined, knowledge was tremendous and so real. Visited my daughter from Michigan, will definatley will return - Terrific city and very awesome memories!
The museum was fantastic. Just seeing all the photos, quilts (which were the best), the equipment used in Alaska,
the whole event was wonderful.
I would recommend it to everyone to see the culture of the Alaskian people and the environment they have had to work and live it all these many years.
Wonderful exhibit on the history and culture of Alaska, especailly the development of the various native Alaskan indian clans. Good art exhibit. Couldn't see all of the musuem because of time constraints, but will go back on next visit.
The museum is well organized and the art has a local flavor-but-universal appeal. Worth checking out for the native art, historical display, and landscape paintings. Saw a good movie during a film festival as well. Good introduction to Anchorage culture!
The Anchorage Museum of History and Art is a wonderful place to go when first arriving in Anchorage. It has a fabulous collection of native art and the exhibit about the history of Anchorage is very informative and helps the visitor appreciate the city and surroundings as they travel about the area. A very good place to go before exploring the area. Also the museum has a wonderful, hands on area for kids to enjoy. There are always new exhibits so it's a nice place to return to.
Great! One of the best smaller museums I've seen. You'll love the local art. The dioramas of the miners camps and native groups were outstanding. I could easily spend a week there instead of the 3-4 hours we did. Great area for kids too in the train room. We got to meet a local author as well as pick up a signed copy of his work, lots of local work for sale in the lobby. Wonderful! Wheelchairs available too. I will do this again.
