A quick but nice way to get a feel for the different areas, and the plant and animal life. Free admission, and lots of informative displays. Worth a quick walk through if you are in town.

We thoroughly enjoyed this little museum. The actual name is Alaska Museum of Science and Nature. Dinosaurs, minerals, animal and science exhibits. . .many hands on activities geared to children. Plenty for adults to see too. A nominal fee for hours of fun.

We had a great tour of the museum with a very knowledgeable guide. The different methods of building and tool making were fascinating.

This is a beautiful museum! The exhibits are exceptional with a nice amount of educational information. It is not very large but a good amount of exhibits for a nice day out. It is excellent to do on a rainy day!
