  • This museum is alright. There are some cool skeletons and taxidermy but it's just a lot smaller than you'd expect a museum to be. I guess I was expecting a lot more but the woman at the front desk was very nice.
  • Very nice and most educational. Great animal displays, I was not aware there were Alaskan Lions at one time
  • Really cool, they have Lucy! Clean facility and friendly staff!
  • We love this,place. Lots of interesting things to see and the kids can actually touch things! There is also a well stocked play area for the kids that includes digging pits.

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.
