Alaska’s military history comes alive! Stories of the last shot of the Civil War, a silk nightgown made for a beloved wife, and stories of the Forgotten are watched over by our brave Eskimo Scout. The Alaska Veterans Museum commemorates the sacrifices our defenders have made and strives to educate and inspire our visitors to remember and honor those who made them. We tell stories of veterans’ service using their own oral histories and artifacts. We honor all branches of the military, and have a wide variety of artifacts and exhibits covering the Civil War to our most recent conflicts. We are a non-profit, 100% volunteer run organization. We are dedicated to insuring our defenders will be remembered and honored for their service. Please come and spend some time with us, let one of our docents tell you their story, or maybe you would like to tell us yours.
