Alaska's largest museum tells the real story of the North through art and design, history, science and culture. Explore Alaska Native cultures with a collection from the Smithsonian Institution. An expansive interactive history gallery tells the story of Alaska. A hands-on science discovery center has marine life tanks, a planetarium and more.
The Anchorage Museum sits on the traditional homeland of the Eklutna Dena’ina. The Museum is committed to recognizing and honoring the land, culture and language of the Dena’ina people. We recognize and respect the continuing connection, by Alaska Native people and all Indigenous people, to the land, waters and communities.
