Interesting. Displays well done. Alot of personal memorabilia gave intimacy to the experience. Uses donations, no longer has grants to maintain.

This is a must do to see the contributions of Alaskan Veterans. There is a lot of veteran history from this area that is forgotten. If you are a WWII buff, you must go! Convenient in the downtown area.

Cool place to take a rest and check out law enforcement regalia from all over the world. They have some neat hats that people have donated from other countries.

The Alaska Veterans Museum is a great source of history and information on our country's veterans and the military engagements affecting Alaska and the surrounding region. Very informative and educational, but also very well done!

We enjoyed visiting this museum and seeing all the artifacts. Lots of things we didn't know about Alaska's place in World War II. The volunteers are very knowledgeable. Good place to spend a couple of hours in downtown Anchorage.
