They did an excellent job of sharing their culture with us. I really liked the headphones they had that allowed everyone to hear the presentations as we were walking.

Tour of area, canoe carved from a single log, cultural center and long house dance. This place is beautiful - alongside a river and replete with forests and native Alaskan culture.

This center is a must see. We took the self guided tour and the gentleman inside took us through the whole center explaining everything. Not only were the exhibits great but his narration taught us so much about his culture. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

You have to look to find the Heritage Center, but it's well worth the visit if you're into local indigenous peoples' history. Well-preserved artifacts as well as a hundreds-year-old Tribal House, oral and written history are part of this beautiful facility. Beautiful Tlingit art and...More

Caught this gem just one day before it closed for the season. At the time, we were the only two visitors, so Jack Strong gave us a personal tour, highlighting his family history. The Heritage Center exists mostly to provide a sanctuary for local native...More
