Anchorage Museum
At almost 16,000 square meters (or 170,000 square feet), this kid-friendly history museum is the largest in the state. The Smithsonian Institution's Arctic Studies Center showcases more than 600 indigenous Alaska artifacts while touch screens offer oral histories. There’s also a 1,400-square-meter gallery that focuses on Alaskan history, including early exploration, the whaling industry and the gold rush. A hands-on creative lab helps kids test their critical thinking skills and rotating exhibitions highlight local and international art and culture. There are also exhibits of contemporary and historic photographs.
