In March, we spent Spring Break with my parents who were visiting from Oregon. We had a good time spending time together and letting them hang out with the boys. While they were here, we visited the Anchorage Museum. We have a family yearly membership that included two guest passes, so we figured it was the perfect time to explore.
Our Spring Break was also very cold. Temperatures did not go above around 25 degrees the entire week, so outdoor play was not really an option for us. The Anchorage Museum, however, was warm and fun with different exhibits to visit as well as the kid’s area to explore. We saw some interesting art while the boys let off some energy.
A solo exhibition called “A Man in the Shadows” by Mariano Gonzales had some very interesting pieces. This one was one of my favorites. I like that the little man inside seems to be riding this contraption.
After a trip through the Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center and a browse through the artwork done by local students, we made our way to the Imaginarium Discovery Center, the younger boy’s favorite section of the museum.
What I love about the Anchorage Museum is that there’s always something for everyone to enjoy. Almost every time we go, there’s something new to view. I’m excited for next fall when a new exhibition about Van Gogh is installed called Van Gogh Alive.
I’m teaming up with some wonderful photographers every month to share our stories through pictures and words. Please take some time to check out LUPJi Photography’s trip to his local farmer’s market and then follow the circle until you find yourself back here on my page.
