As Heard on Morning Line: the Anchorage Museum's 50th Anniversary Celebration!

May 18, 2018

Today's Morning Line featured guest Adam Baldwin, the Director of Community Partnerships and Outreach at the Anchorage Museum. 

This year marks the Museum's 50th Anniversary. Formed in 1968, the mission of the museum has been to connect people, expand perspectives and encourage global dialogue about the North and its distinct environment. The museum began with less than 200 objects and 1500 images on loan from the Cook Inlet Historical Society. Now, the Anchorage Museum of History and Art has four expansions and continues to work alongside the community. 

The Anchorage Museum's 50th Anniversary Celebration is May 18, also on International Museum day. There will be cake, special tours, films, live music and more.
