The non-profit Alaska Museum of Science & Nature fills a special need for science education in Alaska. No other organization in the state educates or exhibits exclusively Alaska's unique science.
In 1989, two University of Alaska, Anchorage professors began a collaborative effort to establish a scientific natural history Museum, a Museum committed only to science. The Museum opened in Eagle River, Alaska in May of 1994.
From the outset, the Museum has energetically pursued it's mission to study and exhibit natural history materials relating to Alaska's natural history and to promote and develop educational programs which benefit students and enrich the curricula of schools and universities in Alaska.
