This is not your typical medical center gift shop! They carry commissioned arts and crafts from native Alaskans that is gorgeous and fairly priced. A much better value than the tourist traps in town. Limited by cash only transactions, so be sure to bring a...More

This shop is a little out of the way, but worth the trip. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and proceeds go directly to the artists and to a college fund. I felt great about purchasing here instead of in a souvenir shop in downtown...More

The ANMC Craft Shop has authentic Native Alaskan crafts at about 30-50% less than you will find in museum gift shops. The quality is excellent, but there is a lot of turnover. If you see something wonderful and unique, I recommend you not wait too...More

I believe it's 10am to 2pm most days. Also, they only accept cash or check, but there is an ATM in the building which doesn't charge a fee.
