Anchorage Museum

This is a very modern looking building right in the heart of downtown Anchorage.  Within walking distance of many of the hotels.

There are beautiful and informative displays of the indigenous people of this area.

In this area they have oral history recorded and being played back throughout. Simply find a screen and seating nearby to hear the history of the people here.  The displays are clothing and hunting equipment and all things necessary to live in this harsh climate.

The upper floors have amazing local art worked displayed as in a gallery or fine art museum.

There is a fee for entrance to the museum.  It also has a great gift shop and a delightful restaurant inside.  Most definitely a place to add to your list of things to see in Anchorage.
