The Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center is expanding to the North - with the addition of 25,000 square feet of new gallery space for the art collection and an exploration of art in the North. The expansion will add four art galleries, informal gallery/event spaces, administrative offices and additional space for the Discovery Center. Concurrently, we are excited to be underway on a new 15,000-square-foot Alaska gallery that explores the landscape, people, lifeways and stories of Alaska.

This expansion is about more than bringing works from the collection out for public view. It's also about creating a compelling narrative for the North through the lens of art and furthering the museum's mission of expanding perceptions of the North, its landscape and cultures. The project is made possible through a generous gift from the Rasmuson family, which has been matched by a grant from the Rasmuson Foundation.

Construction has begun, with completion set for the fall of 2017. The museum will remain open during construction with only affected areas closed. At times traffic on Sixth Avenue and A Street will be impacted.
