In the Anchorage Museum, students gain new knowledge through discovery. Artistic, cultural, historical and scientific learning is facilitated through objects, exhibitions, and hands-on experiences.
The Department of Education and Interpretation serves as a catalyst for teacher and student learning, engagement, and enjoyment, connecting intergenerational visitors from Alaska and beyond with the works in the museum's collections and exhibitions. Through interpretation and teaching, the department strengthens the museum's commitment to its communities, making the museum accessible to the widest possible audience.
Our teacher and school programs are designed to promote active participation. We offer options that are guided by a museum educator or docent (tours, guided investigations and more) as well as options for teachers who would like to guide their students through the museum at their own pace.
For teachers who aren't able to bring their students to the museum, we offer a multitude of outreach options, including a traveling planetarium and hands-on traveling kits.
