A nice museum with many exhibits. Saw the Matisse exhibit which is only drawings, not paintings, and primarily focused on Alaskan masks. Much of the exhibits are dated in the mid to late 1900s

What an exhibit! It showed how the artist was influenced by the masks of the Arctic and delved into the lives of the tribes and villages there. So informative, don't miss the videos.

We went there in early December and I had no idea of the contribution of the Native people to military conflicts. Also there was a Matisse exhibition at the same time which was less "clearcut" based on the guided tour and the guide doing it.

Very beautifully done architectural setting. This museum has a very good permanent modern art collection. In addition, it often hosts excellent suiting exhibitions. Well worth a visit.
