The exhibition features more than 600 objects from the Smithsonian's collections that were selected and interpreted with help from Alaskan Native advisers. Examples include an 1893 Tlingit war helmet from the southeast village of Taku and a 1935 Iñupiaq feast bowl from Wales, on Alaska’s northwest coast. Learn about objects through touch screens where you can zoom in on photos and scroll through more information, such as related oral histories and archival images.  Upgrade your experience by visiting the Thomas Planetarium. Tickets for the Planetarium can be booked at check-in. Embark on a breathtaking journey to the stars, through 3D graphics, surround sound and a dome screen, and more. The planetarium offers a fascinating way to learn about astronomy and the Earth's solar system.

This is an outstanding art, culture, and history museum in the heart of Anchorage. You will experience the story and identity of Alaska from the voices and perspectives of the past, present, and future.

Very nice and informative museum about the diversity of Alaskans. I don't usually care for museums, but this one was very interesting and memorable.
