Anchorage Museum is a great option for those rainy days in Girdwood.
This is also a nice non-rainy day trip too! It is huge and well curated, with tons of expeditions and 1000’s of art pieces. Kids and adults will love the 100s of hands-on exhibits and Spark!Lab. Lots of fine art and my highlight was the massive native culture installations.
Cruisin’ The Fossil Coastline
View Alaska through the eyes of this “walrus-and ammonite obsessed scientist and artist with a fondness for cheeseburgers, ratfish, and trilobites.” This is another family-friendly exhibit with life-size sculptures.
