It would be best to check out the schedule of events and timing for the free ride back to the city if you visit. There is a bus to take you to and from. I rode back to town for free since I had purchased an admission to the center. Things moved a bit slow in the show that I saw. A lot of repetition in a show that could have shown more variety. Indoor and outdoor spots to see art work, history and see actual outside activities.

We had a bit of time to kill before flying home from Anchorage. The Heritage Center offers a hotel shuttle which makes it convenient to visit. We found the displays interesting and they had activities going on during the visit in the visitors center. I wouldn't say this was a highlight of our trip by any extreme, but we did find it interesting and learned a bit more about the history of the Alaskan natives.

We enjoyed our visit: demonstrations, interactive showcases and living history in terms of native housing. A visit here is a must if you're interested in tribal migration and living explanations. High recommendation.

As we came here at the end of the season some of the exhibits were closed. However the weather was great so we were able to see a lot outside. We also watched some of the dancing. There are complimentary shuttle buses which pick up from the middle of town and bring you here which was good.

While in Anchorage this past July 2017. For 2 week land / sea tour. Had the opportunity to visit the Alaska heritage center as one of excursions. As we arrived at the center we were amazed of the information available. From demonstrations on native games, music and art. The young Native Alaskan people are very proud as they tell their native history. There are crafts available for sale that were handmade. They had a village in outdoor area of native homes to explore. The whole experience was amazing. Definitely would recommend.
