This centre gives you a good insight to the lives of the Alaskan native people. Inside the building, is a hall of Cultures, in this area, you also see the local artists at work. There is a gathering place, and this is where the Dancers perform. Venture outside, and you walk around a lake, visiting different village sites. At each site, is a native belonging to that village, and they take you around and explain what kind of life existed for them. Altogether, there are 6 life size authentic villages surrounding the lake. It was very interesting.
If you are feeling peckish, then there is a Cafe for meals (closes at 3pm) and take-aways.
There is a good array of gifts available representing the different Tribes. If you buy from here, the money goes towards the Centre which is a non-profit organization.
