Temporary Exhibits

Cruisin' the Fossil Coastline Organized by the Anchorage Museum

On Display: May 3 - October 19

Be prepared to look at the world in a whole new way – through the eyes of a walrus-and ammonite-obsessed scientist and an artist with a fondness for cheeseburgers, ratfish and trilobites – in this exhibition on Alaska fossils.

Alaska artist Ray Troll and paleontologist Kirk Johnson, Director of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, logged more than 10,000 miles in 250 days traveling the North American coast in search of fossils and the stories they tell. This exhibition focuses on their Alaska fossil adventures and the remarkable stories that fossils reveal.
