People Staircase Hero

The Anchorage Museum shares the stories of Alaska and the North - stories about Northern resilience, diversity and innovation that weave together social, political, cultural, scientific, historical and artistic threads. Explore the diversity of Alaska Native cultures, including masterworks of Alaska Native art and design from the collections of the Smithsonian Institution. Our visitors tell us the Anchorage Museum is the best place to start or end their visit to Alaska because we provide a context for all they will see or have seen while in the state.


The Anchorage Museum offers complimentary tours of the Alaska Exhibition and the Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center, May-September, depending on staff and volunteer availability.
