A new Alaska Exhibit is opening September 15th, the product of a lot of construction you may have noticed in recent months at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center.  

Our guest on Morning Line, Curator of Alaska History and Culture Aaron Leggett says that the Alaska Exhibition has been the same since 1986, "It's been fun to reimagine that space and exhibition... although it's in a chronological sequence, it's also thematic."  Leggett says the new displays pose the question, "How have Alaska's peoples adapted to the landscape and it's resources?"
