Your Alaska hosts are pleased to entertain CSG delegates and guests with delicious food and drink in an incredible setting, one of the 10 most visited attractions in Alaska. A world-class museum located in the heart of Alaska’s largest city, the Anchorage Museum opened its doors in 1968 with an exhibition of 60 borrowed Alaska paintings and a collection of 2,500 historic and ethnographic objects loaned from the Cook Inlet Historical Society. As the facility grew, so did the museum’s collections. The permanent collection now numbers 25,000 objects, plus an education collection of roughly 2,000 artifacts; the Atwood Resource Center houses more than 500,000 historical photographs, 12,000 publications and 800 maps. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the Imaginarium Discovery Center, where they can touch a sea star, shoot an air cannon, create an earthquake, experiment with gravity and much more.
