Spent a couple of hours in this museum. The ConocoPhillips Gallery had a wonderful exhibit of native Alaskan tribes with articles from each tribe: clothing, tools and implements, carvings, baskets, etc. Also interviews with living members from the individual groups. Very informative. A must see!

This heritage center is a fantastic way to learn about the various cultures that make Alaska. Live programs demonstrate dance, story telling, athletic competitions and rich history. Two hours could be dedicated to the performances before even exploring exhibits. Visit six homes representing different cultures...More

Enjoyed the Russian display. Also enjoyed The Native artifacts. Kind of pricey. 25 dollars for two and the student was discounted.

This is a gem of a place and well worth exploring, particularly if there is even a small interest in Native art and history. The Smithsonian section is world class and well worth a couple of hours, together with the Art gallery and even the...More

Highly specialised in Alaska stuff. Knowledge offers is interesting, which ranges from naive Alaskan culture to Alaska-Russia relationships and Alaskan history.

Was enticed by the new showing of the polar bear garden. Expected to see the animal, at least in pictures or stuffed. Instead, the presentation involved Alaska's relationship with Russia. Oh, there was a small bear picture on the wall, but the showing was of...More
