Businessman Oscar Anderson claimed to be the 18th person who ever set foot in the city of Anchorage. That’s highly debatable, considering native presence for thousands of years. Still, he left the city a nice 1913 house museum. The museum reflects the domestic appearances of early Anchorage homes, with the interior decor in its earliest configuration. Guided tours of the museum last 45 minutes.

Oscar Anderson House Museum Reviews & Ratings
The wonderful lady giving the tour was very knowledgeable. She walked us through the whole house, which was build for one of the first families in Anchorage. She answered all my children's endless questions. I brought 4 children ages 13-7 and they all enjoyed seeing the historical items and learning about early Anchorage.
Cool museum. This place was listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1978.
Visited the park after hours to take a look at the house. Really enjoyed the plaques outside that had some of the history and also stories behind some of the naming in the region. Found the story about the crazy pilots who tried to explore the interior of Alaska very enlightening. Also, crazy to imagine Anderson having to work so hard to get to Anchorage back in the day - makes me feel the drive wasn't so bad after all.
I wish I could travel there. I love History .
