In 1964, the most powerful earthquake in the history of the United States hit southern Alaska. Known as the Great Alaskan Earthquake, it killed 143 people, devastated cities and towns at a magnitude of 9.2, and even caused tsunamis. 50 years later, the Anchorage Museum is looking back at the vastness of the destruction and the efforts to rebuild with the exhibit Riskland: Remembering the 1964 Earthquake. The exhibit features photographs, video, personal narratives, historical artifacts, and hands-on activiites.
