I love this little house museum located in downtown Anchorage. A visit at Christmas time is a must -- it's all decorated for Swedish christmas and the tour guides give you not only a tour of the house but some really interesing history on Anchorage back in the day. It has a wonderful view of the inlet and it's located along the coastal trail so you could go for a walk after touring the house. It's definitely worth a stop and look.

We went here on our last day in anchorage kind of as a last hoorah with little to no expectation. We had so much fun! It was just my husband and I and we loved the hands on portion of the exhibit. The art exhibit was quite fascinating too and incredibly inspiring. There were a full areas that were closed off, but its ok because there was still a lot to do and see. And there was a large picture of a Narwal painted on the wall. Narwals rule.

This is clearly a labor of love for a few volunteers. It's a specialized collection geared for children or people who are serious aviation buffs, but it was cool to look around. The guys working in the hangars were happy to give us the history of various planes and explain what they were working on. I had fun playing with the flight simulator and the old Alaska Airways plane was neat to check out. There's a shuttle from the airport or you can walk.
