Alaska Museum Of Science And Nature Reviews & Ratings
A neat place to spend a couple hours. Most things here are able to be touched which is great for hands on learning. In the back there's a whole kids are to play with bins of toys such as blocks, a dollhouse, puzzles, etc. And that is where the digging pits are. Socks are required to go into the dog pit but if you forget socks you can buy them for less than a dollar at the gift shop.
Had a birthday party here and the kids loved it. Fun place
Table place for Alaska people in Alaska native to know a little bit more about their Heritage and the beginnings in origins of Alaska and food is great
Smaller than I expected. Absolutely dead silent and it echoes horrendously. While they do have alot for kids to do and touch every noise or excited scream is magnified by 1000. My daughter loved it I just felt bad for anyone in there with us since every excited noise sounded like the apocolypse.
This place is so cool and the amount of hands on exhibits is very fun. Def suggest for a dino or animal loving person.
