Anchorage Museum, Wells Fargo recognize military with free family day
January 02, 2014
The Anchorage Museum and Wells Fargo will honor and appreciate Alaska’s military families at a free family event 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 12 at the Anchorage Museum.
The afternoon includes hands-on activities. Families can tackle engineering challenges including Domino Diving Board and Glue is the Clue, create a likeness at the Self Portrait Station, or stop at the Cardboard Construction Station to build a robot, submarine or time machine.
Wells Fargo will present $75,000 in charitable contributions to four nonprofit organizations supporting Alaska military service members, veterans and their families. The grants are part of Wells Fargo’s three-year, $35 million commitment to help veterans and military families with sustainable housing, career transition and financial education.
This event is also the public’s first opportunity to meet the museum’s new director, Julie Decker.
Museum general admission is free all day thanks to Wells Fargo, which sponsors the Wells Fargo Free Day series at the Anchorage Museum.
The Anchorage Museum is the largest museum in Alaska and one of the top 10 most visited attractions in the state. The museum’s mission is to share and connect Alaska with the world through art, history and science. Learn more at www.anchoragemuseum.org.
