Alaska State Museum
Located in the Father Andrew P. Kashevaroff (APK) building, the Alaska State Museum is a great way to experience the history, art, and culture of the many diverse regions of Alaska through extensive permanent exhibits augmented by changing exhibits. Objects collected and preserved here for a century represent the people of Alaska, their lives and struggles across thousands of years in this vast landscape. They tell of friendship and warfare, respect and greed, reverence and exploitation. Alaska's people and history shaped these treasured objects and filled them with meaning. Through them, discover what Alaska means to you. Admission during the summer is $14 and $9 during the winter. Youth (18 & under) are free. Visit our website for hours and current guidelines.
