Em Anchorage, Alasca (EUA) o Anchorage Museum estruturou-se em 3 pilares (áreas do conhecimento): Arte, História e Ciência. O destaque vai para o centro de estudos árticos, o planetário (já que a atmosfera lá possui menos poeira e menos influência de luz de cidades) e a atual exposição de mamutes e gigantes da era do gelo.
The Anchorage Museum brings the best of Alaska to the world and the best of the world to Alaska.
Through a combination of art, history and science the Anchorage Museum creates a rich, deep understanding of the human experience and offers something for everyone.
