Alaska State Museum
Alaska State Museum Review
This is one of Alaska's finest museums. Those interested in Native cultures will enjoy examining the 38-foot walrus-hide umiak (an open, skin-covered Inupiaq boat). Natural-history exhibits include preserved brown bears and a two-story-high eagle-nesting tree. Russian-American and gold-rush displays and contemporary art complete the collection. Be sure to visit the gift shop (run by the Friends of the Alaska State Museum) and its extraordinary selection of Native art, including baskets, carvings, and masks.
