Welcome to the Anchorage Museum’s online Press Office. Members of the media may view and download information for current and upcoming exhibitions and programs, access the press release archive, and download high-resolution images and video.
Filming at the Anchorage Museum is a courtesy that may be extended to projects that contribute to the museum’s mission. These may include educational documentaries, news crews and news productions, or projects that feature or promote the Anchorage Museum and are reviewed and approved by the Marketing and Public Relations or Facility Rental Department.
Due to limited resources, commercial filming requests are not a museum priority. Commercial projects include advertising for a third-party product, annual report for a third-party company, movie productions, television productions, etc.
B-roll of the museum is available to qualified members of the media.

“See Us. Know Us.” tells the story of the Anchorage Museum archives team’s work to ensure equity in its collections by telling the stories of Alaska’s often underrepresented communities. Included are a behind-the-scenes look at how the museum works with community members to create, share and preserve these stories — and how serendipitous moments can help expand a collection and inspire a major exhibition. The film is on view in the Anchorage Museum main hall through April and viewable at anchoragemuseum.org.
Docents (the museum’s volunteer tour guides) give tours, facilitate gallery experiences and interpret exhibitions through dialogue with museum visitors of all ages. Docents develop professional skills in program delivery and build expansive knowledge of Alaska and the North. Bilingual and multilingual applicants encouraged. Apply online at anchoragemuseum.org.
Learn more at one of three information session in the museum lobby 6-8:30 p.m. Friday, March 3; Noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 4; and 1:30-3 p.m. Saturday, March 11.
