It is a beautiful house with an interesting and educational tour. Touring the Oscar Anderson House Museum is definitely worth it. Price is really good for the ticket, so being an expensive tour couldn't be an excuse.

The museum is open only from June to September and during the week. There is however a Christmas tour available in December, during the first two weekends.

Address:
420 M St, Anchorage, AK 99501, USA

Price:
Kids $1, adults $3
