Travel & Vacation: Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center (Anchorage, Alaska)

Anchorage, Alaska

Super neat and comfortable boulder chairs!

Our family recently had the opportunity to travel to Alaska for our family vacation.  We arrived in Anchorage in the middle of the night, slept a couple hours before getting up and heading out to explore Anchorage.  One of the first stops we made was the Anchorage Museum at Ramuson Center, 625 C. Street, Anchorage, AK.  The hotel driver dropped us off right outside the entrance of the museum.

The kids loved the opportunity to learn about Alaska – fFrom displays with the culture, life styles, people, and history of Alaska. The kids loved exploring the neat science and technology exhibits as well as watching the animal presentation! They had really cool boulder chairs and places for parents or grandparents to sit and relax in the common area which seemed popular for the adults! The kids loved it and it was entertaining for us as parents too.

If you have some extra time while in Anchorage and you’re traveling with your family you should check it out. If you want you can use a free locker to put your travel items in while going through the museum. Also, it is part of the Science Center Association so if you are a member of your local Science Center check to see if they are part of the Association and you will get into this museum for free! 🙂

We had a blast at this museum!  They were not into the “art” gallery as much as the history, science and more kid focused rooms.  They had a lot of neat history and culture regarding Alaska.  It’s a great place to visit if you have kids and some time while in Anchorage, Alaska!

Now that’s a pretty shoe for you to wear!  Brina loved it!  Karlie said it didn’t look comfortable at all! It’s beautiful, but not sure I could stay upright in them.

“I made this peice because I like Mary Janes.  My grandmother made me wear orthopedic shoes when I was a child.  I wasn’t allowed to wear black patent leather Mary Janes like all the popular schoolgirls.  When I started making shoes I decided to make my own Mary Janes” – Paula Rasmus-Dede

I think Paula’s shoes may be a little bit fancier than just the average Mary Jane.
