  • Interesting to learn more about the people of Alaska. The outside area has a lot of walking, so take comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing. Met lots of nice local artisans as well.  more »

  • Definitely a shadow of what it used to be. Almost seems as if they are running a skeleton crew, if the skeleton was only the torso up. It was obvious no one here was prepared for their Halloween event. Sad to see this place go, but not all good things last.
  • Pretty neat, and a relaxing visit. You learn a lot about the tribes of Alaska, and they have some cool performances in the main hall that I enjoyed more than I thought I would.
  • Great time with the kids looking at native Alaskan homes from the past
  • Pretty interesting place that divided the different groups by area. I think they could add a lot more to this project though.
  • Very impressed. Great people and interesting information set up in innovative ways. Highly recommend.
