Anchorage Bed and Breakfast Club members always recommend visiting the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center to our guests. The museum is located at 625 C Street in downtown Anchorage.
Again this summer the museum will be offering the Alaska Culture Pass which includes admission to both the Anchorage Museum and the Alaska Native Heritage Center. Also included with the Alaska Culture Pass is a complimentary shuttle between the two. Parking is free at the Native Heritage Center but not free at the Anchorage Museum.
Permanent Exhibits at the Anchorage Museum include Anchorage 1910 – 1935 and Art of the North. Through April 25 the museum has Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination. Also on display through April 11 is the student Art Exhibition of Anchorage School District titled Landscape and Reflections.
Our summer bed and breakfast guests can see two special exhibits this summer: Bradford Washburn: Glories of the Greatland and Kiska and Adak: War in the Aleutians. The Washburn exhibit of black and white Alaska landscape photos is back by popular demand. The War in the Aleutians includes photos of remains from World War II and objects from the museum’s WW II collections.
I recommend that guests start their Anchorage Museum experience by visiting The Alaska Gallery located on the second floor. This gallery is devoted to telling Alaska’s history from the lifestyles of Alaska’s earliest people through the pipeline era.
Plan to conclude your visit by dining at Muse. Check out their lunch or their dinner menus then make a reservation.
Plan to spend at least a half day at the Anchorage Museum. If you buy the Culture Pass and decide to do both on the same day, it will be a full day. In past years use of the Culture Pass does not have to be done on the same day.
