Had a delicious lunch in their cafeteria during the Festival of Native Arts. Their chocolate chip cookies were fabulous. We went back the next day and snagged a dozen!

We love going here and just looking around. The sign in the front is the most famous to take a picture with as the sun breaks around 10:30 am or so.

We have a great museum up on the hill at the University of Alaska. It has lots of information about the people of Alaska. In the main part of the museum it is divided into areas. From the South East to the Arctic. Very cool....More

The university is beautiful to see. The staff are wonderful and are readily willing to assist you. As one of them said, "It's Alaska and everybody helps each other out."

Worthwhile visit. Lots of different exhibits documenting culture, history, wildlife, fauna and flora...art and artifacts for all interested in learning about Alaska and see Alaskan arts and crafts outside the ubiquitous gift shops. And all that in a architecturally stunningly designed building.
