Anchorage Museum At Rasmuson Center - Review

Alaska’s largest museum was opened in 1968 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Alaska purchase. Since then, it has expanded its permanent collection to about 25,000 historic objects, half a million photographs, and a library which undisputedly one of the richest sources of Alaskan heritage in the world.

The museums’ temporary exhibits underline Alaska’s remoteness from the world; they all seem to be about getting the people here to connect with the culture outside. However, the main attractions are still the permanent exhibits, which are:

  • The Alaska Gallery: A thousand objects covering Alaska’s history and ethnology; including dioramas of Native American camps, gold mining camps, Russian settlers and statehood.
  • The Art of The North: 7 galleries covering landscapes, works from early Alaskan expeditions, and including an entire gallery of Sydney Laurence works (a man who’d undeniably the greatest artist Alaska has ever produced).

And with 9000 sq feet and 80 exhibits, about 20 of which were made specifically for the Imaginarium, it’s safe to say that even Alaska’s got a thriving science centre. And what a centre it is! Located within the Anchorage Museum, but separate from it, the exhibits include:

  • BP Kinetic Space: Energy, force and motion.
  • Bubble Space: Surface tension, shape and light reflection.
  • TOTE Kid Space: Safe and hands on art, history and science for younger than 5 years of age.
  • Earth and Life Science: Geology, Geography and Zoology.
  • The New Thomas Planetarium: It is a great 3D and surround sound theatre and shows movies about the solar system and astronomy in general.

It’s all so stylish, attractive, educational and interactive; you’ll love seeing your child’s wonder come alive in this space.

Anchorage Museum At Rasmuson Center, Anchorage Reviews

  • A great start to our trip. We learned a lot about the Inuit from the art and displays and they had a great 'science' area. We loved the historical exhibits as well. Its a part of Alaska that you don't get to hear about living on mainland America. But when they say the close at 6pm then they really mean it. We were in the gift shop and suddenly all the lights were being turned out because 'they were closing'. I'm glad we weren't out in the main museum at that time!

  • This was an excellent location to view art and culture. I was especially impressed by the Native Alaskan cultural displays. The displays had excellent and detailed information available to tell you what you were viewing.

  • There is a lot of artwork but I was more interested in history. I wanted to see more on earthquake, gold rush and ice age discoveries. Kid space was very nice. Cafe prices were fair. Metered 2-hr limit parking in the area was a bummer.

  • I actually liked it more than I had expected. Reached here around closing time but that hour spent was well worth it.

  • F#@$ing closed on Mondays. I suppose i should have checked that out rather than spend $12 on parking across the road. There's a lot of vagrants out front. Don't let them deter you. Even if it is freaking Monday. Stupid Monday
