  • To provide a major cultural center for Anchorage where the community and its visitors meet, create, learn and participate in the Museum programs and activities; and
  • To stimulate the activities of a creative population of artists, historians, anthropologists and other allied professionals.

By demonstration, leadership and education, the Museum endeavors to serve the widest possible audience and to work with groups, individuals and organizations which share a common interest in cultural and educational activities.
