ANCHORAGE, Alaska—The Alaska Veteran's Museum marked its one-year anniversary on Sunday, offering guests free admission, food and music.
When the museum opened its doors last April, it became the first veteran's museum in Alaska, home to more veterans per capita than any other state.
"Last year when we opened, this was a ten-year dream that came true and so now here we are, first anniversary. We've totally redone the inside. This is a most impressive place," says Novak.
Since the opening, more than 1,000 people have visited the museum. Hundreds of historic artifacts tell stories of how Alaskans answered the nation's call to arms.
"More are being brought in all the time, I think we're going to outgrow this. Very quickly. Which is good," says volunteer and veteran J. Terrill.
