The Anchorage Museum is grateful to our generous sponsors for supporting our mission. The museum serves more than 10,000 students and teachers annually with interdisciplinary programs that connect Pre-K through 12th grade students from various backgrounds to the museum's resources.

Education programs are made possible, in part, thanks to funding from the Anchorage Museum Foundation through the Larry and Wilma Carr Education Fund, and the Emi Chance Memorial Fund.
