The Anchorage Museum’s collections help fulfill its mission to connect people, expand perspectives, and encourage global dialogue about the North and its distinct environment. The museum has important collections of Alaska Native objects, historical and contemporary artwork, and objects that illustrate Alaska’s history. Works by Alaska artists have been at the heart of the museum’s collections. The museum has a fine collection of art that provides a wide survey of what has been created in this state from the late 18th century to the most recent artistic endeavors.
