  • I visited a week before they were art to close the outside exhibits. Each outside cabin had a volunteer to explain the traditions of the tribe that would have lived there. The volunteers were very knowledgeable and friendly. They were quick to answer questions or just let me view inner objects of the homes in quiet. During my visit, there were live shows with traditional dance and demonstrations of games and stories of other interesting facts. There were tables set up with vendors outside and i was lucky enough to be able to purchase some hand made items. It was disappointing to note that the internal gift shop has items made in China rather than take advantage of the Native talent so readily available.

  • Advice - check to see if you’re visiting within seasonal hours. I arrived during the shutdown winter season but the venue was still open and has a small collection of Inuit artefacts and art works. The outside area makes for a nice stroll but all of the exhibits were closed. Alright for a free stop off to stretch your legs on the way to Eagle River Nature Centre during off season

  • Fun place to visit. Quite a few animals to see. You should walk around instead of driving. They didn't tell us when we arrived that they have a large parking area. Instead we saw a few small pull over areas to look at the moose. Go directly to the large area and walk. More enjoyable that way too.

  • Fantastic overview of indigenous tribe life and early Alaskan history. Take a guided tour! Dusty was fantastic. He is a descendent of well respected native family. Great information and education.

  • I loved watching the performances! It was interesting to see the traditional dances and watch them play traditional Alaskan games. I also enjoyed hearing the music and stories. Fun to walk around the village area, which includes several replicas of Native Alaskan homes, and spiritual center. Inside the cultral center, it was much smaller than I had expected. But the displays were interesting. They were primarily about the various Native Alaskan tribes and what was important to them. You can buy a ticket to the Anchorage Museum at a discounted price at the front desk here. If you’re interested in Native History, the Anchorage Museum has much more information on the topic.
