A Room With A View
This temporary exhibition space also offers dramatic views of the Chugach Mountains, the 250-mile mountain range that embraces Anchorage’s eastern edge.
The museum first opened in 1968 and has expanded three times over the past four decades. Anchorage celebrated the grand opening of the museum’s most recent expansion, a four-story west wing with a shimmering glass facade, in 2010. The stunning addition was designed by London architect David Chipperfield with Anchorage-based Kumin Associates as architect of record.
