  • Fantastic. Lots of things to touch, lots of things for kids, lots of real science for the adults, very affordable. Will go again.
  • Stumbled across this about 2 years ago and continue to be impressed. It's an amazing place for kids since so much of it they're allowed to touch. It's a little bit of everything from rocks to animals to fossils and even a play area. Great for toddlers through teens because they can play or read in detail info depending on age level. Make sure to take advantage of the wooden drawers throughout the building as they're full of other items you can check out but there's just not enough shelf/table space for it all
  • Fun and family-friendly museum. Lots of great information and hands-on exhibits. I definitely recommend it for snowy winter days with little ones!
  • Pretty good for its size, lots of information. Although, it was absolutely freezing and kinda dim.. Bring a light coat/ hoodie.
  • Only open 3 days a week?

Where to stay in Anchorage

Anchorage hotels increase room rates during the height of the tourist season, but you can visit the area economically any time of year by choosing a budget-friendly bed and breakfast or small inn. The city's downtown area contains the priciest rooms; most are offered by chain hotels. You can find less expensive rooms at a cluster of hotels located in Midtown, a largely commercial neighborhood with a good selection of restaurants and shops.
