The history of the different tribes and their living conditions told in stories and dance. Most of the place is a walking tour which is great to see.

IMHO, visiting Alaska with out visiting this place is not complete. Learnt about the history, people, culture, heritage, and lot more here. Kids would love a lot. Checkout their daily program as they demo, culture, songs, dances, and games everyday.

The center showcases many of the types of native Alaskan groups. The homes showcased how they lived and showed many of the items used in the early days.
