Tips for Families

The Anchorage Museum is open all year; try visiting first thing in the morning, or later in the afternoon, especially during the busy summer months. The museum website is a vital tool for parents, too, since regular special events often involve free admission. While the Anchorage Museum does have a restaurant on-site, Muse, it might work better for famlies to bring their own snacks and drinks, and set up camp in the Atrium, a nice space with a small water fountain, and the only area in the museum where food is allowed. http://www.anchoragemuseum.org

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly accommodations

Stay at the Anchorage Grand Hotel, a former apartment building renovated into hotel suites. We love the classy kitchenettes and a location within walking distance to downtown Anchorage attractions. http://www.anchoragegrand.com

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly restaurants

A favorite among local families is the award-winning Snow City Cafe, a delightfully fun spot at the west end of 4th Avenue in downtown Anchorage. From Polar Bear Breakfasts to delicious soups and great coffee, the cafe is an extremely popular spot for visitors and residents. http://www.snowcitycafe.com

My Kid's Review

My favorite part about the museum is the room where you can sit in a chair and pull yourself up to the ceiling using ropes. I also like the huge bubble-maker. Sometimes I go up to the second floor to see the model ships, because I like models. (8 year-old son).
