The Anchorage Museum is an art, history, ethnography, ecology, and science museum dedicated to studying and exploring the land, peoples, art, and history of Alaska.

The museum opened in 1968 and today has a collection of 25,000 objects and 500,000 historic photographs. The museum is also home to the Alaska office of the Smithsonian’s Arctic Studies Center.

The Smithsonian Institution’s Arctic Studies Center’s initiatives include research programs to increase understanding of northern peoples, cultures, and environments.

The Anchorage Museum serves a statewide mission with its exhibits shared with other museums in Alaska, such as the museums in Unalaska, Bethel, Homer, Ketchikan, Kenai, Fairbanks, Kodiak, Eek, and Juneau.

The museum’s library and archives are in high demand for research and images.
