Nice place to visit and learn about native culture. Kid friendly! There are short documentaries in the theater and live demonstrations on stage. There were local artists selling their handmade products which provides a wonderful opportunity to buy souvenirs.
It was nice to learn about all the different Alaskan Native Cultures and see how they lived. It wish the tour guide had been more knowledgeable about the Alaskan Customs and Traditions. The films were great.
Not very professionally operated, especially the kids doing the sports demo. Visit on your own, if you come on a tour, they skip a lot. Very friendly vendors. Plan on spending about 4 or 5 hours to see everything.
A great step into native lifestyle...not a TON to do, but it's a lovely campus and well cared for and planned. Prices feel a little high until you remember you're very glad to support such a place!
A wonderful place where you can get a real feel for native culture, history, and traditions. There are also opportunities to buy beautiful hand crafted items from Alaskan native artists as well. It's well worth the visit!
