Oscar Anderson House Museum

From friends in Anchorage comes this reminder of a historic gem worth a visit this summer:

The Oscar Anderson House Museum offers guided tours all summer through September 1. The museum is located downtown at 420 M Street, along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail at Elderberry Park.

Visitors will enjoy a 45-minute guided tour of the House Museum, recently named a Distinctive Destination by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Visitors will learn about the history and day-to-day life of early Anchorage as illustrated by one of its pioneer families.
The House Museum is open from 12 to 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Sundays (except July 4th). Guided tours are offered throughout each afternoon. Admission is $10 per adult and $5 per child 3 to 12. Children under 3 are admitted free. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Admission fees are used to support the operations of the House Museum program.
The Alaska Association for Historic Preservation manages the operations of The Oscar Anderson House Museum in partnership with the Municipality of Anchorage.
