A really good museum with excellent history of Alaska (including a copy of the promissory note purchasing Alaska from Russia). Wonderful displays of artifacts from the traditional cultures who have lived in the area for thousands of years. Well worth a visit.

So many options in the museum! You HAVE to check this out. Rotating exhibits help show Alaskan culture.

Nice museum with some very interesting exhibits. My reget is that we did not have enough time to explor everything that we wanted to see.
